# Foiling the Parrot Beak

## OBJECTIVE: To learn how to multiply two binomials

In a previous lesson, you learned how to multiply a monomial by a polynomial and divide a polynomial by a monomial. Sharing the Booty: https://www.geogebra.org/m/x8adhm2g In this lesson, you'll learn how to multiply two binomials using the Parrot Beak Method or the FOIL Method.

## TRY IT YOURSELF ...

The applet below will drill you on multiplying two binomials. On a separate sheet of paper, multiply the binomials you see on the applet. Be sure to simplify your expression afterward. Enter this expression into the input box provided. (Enter "x^2" to show ). If you enter the correct expression, you'll see a big "CORRECT !!!" sign appear. Otherwise, you'll have to redo your multiplication. Repeat as many times as needed to master the concept.
﻿Below is a set of problems that require you to find the product of two binomials. First, solve the problems on scratch paper. Then check the Answer Box below for the correct answers.
