**The FOIL Method** is a process used in algebra to multiply two binomials.
The lesson on the Distributive Property, explained how to multiply a monomial
or a single term such as 7 by a binomial such as (4 + 9x).

But, what if there was a binomial instead of a single term outside of the
parentheses? That is, what if a binomial was being multiplied by another
binomial? An example of this is given below.

This is where the FOIL Method comes in. The next page will explain what the FOIL Method is and how to use it to solve this
problem.
