Solutions

Chapter 1.3, Problem 47E
To determine

To calculate: The simplified value of the expression (2x5)(x2x+1) .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 47E

The value of the expression (2x5)(x2x+1) is 2x37x2+7x5 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The expression (2x5)(x2x+1) .

Formula used:

To multiply two polynomial expressions, first multiply each term of first polynomial by second polynomial and then add the results. This property is known as distributive property, which is mathematically expressed as,

  (a+b)(c+d)=a(c+d)+b(c+d)

Calculation:

Consider the given expression (2x5)(x2x+1) .

Recall the to multiply two polynomial expressions, first multiply each term of first polynomial by second polynomial and then add the results. This property is known as distributive property, which is mathematically expressed as,

  (a+b)(c+d)=a(c+d)+b(c+d)

Apply it,

  (2x5)(x2x+1)=2x(x2x+1)5(x2x+1)=2xx2+2x(x)+2x1+(5)x2+(5)(x)+(5)1=2x32x2+2x5x2+5x5

Combine the like terms and simplify it further as,

  (2x5)(x2x+1)=2x32x2+2x5x2+5x5=2x3+(2x25x2)+(2x+5x)5=2x37x2+7x5

Thus, the value of the expression (2x5)(x2x+1) is 2x37x2+7x5 .
