Ans. a564c3d. с с CASE II. When one factor is Compound and the other Simple. RULE. 78. Multiply cach term of the compound factor by the simple factor, as in the last case; then these products placed one after another with their proper signs, will be the product required. Ex. 1. By 4ax с 3 Ex. 5. Multiply 8a^ x2 --3b+c by 2ac. Ans. 16u3cx2 - 6abc+2ac". Ex. 6. Multiply ---3.02 -- 4a+5 by --4ax. Ans. 12ax 3 +16a" x — 20ax. Ex. 7. Multiply aż tax+x2 by ax. Ans. a3x ta’xo + x . Ex. 3. Multiply 12 ----xy+ya by --x? y. Ans. --*y+x?y? - yo. Ex. 9. Multiply 3a -- 2ub töb2 by a2b2. Ans. 3a41,--Ca'b3 + 3uob*. Ex. 10. Multiply a??--ar+9 by 5. Ans. 5a” 22 -59x +45. Ex. 11. Multiply 2cd-3ab--3 by fac. Ans. Sac’d--12a2bc-12ac. Ex. 12. Multiply 7xz+- 3ab-5ya by ---xy. Ans. -7xoyz-3abxy +5xy”. Ex. 13. Multiply a+b-c-d by abcd. Ans. a'bcd+abcd-abcd-abcd2. CASE III. RULE. 79. Multiply every term of the multiplicand by each term of the multiplier successively as in the last case; then, add or connect all the partial products together, and the sum will be the product required. Note. It is necessary to observe that like quantities are generally placed under each other, in order to facilitate their addition. And if several compound quantities are to be multiplied continually together; thus, (a+b)x(a--b) X(a2 + ab + b2) X(ao-ab +-ba). Multiply the first factor by the second, and then that product by the third, and so on to the last factor; but it is sometimes more concise not to observe the order in which the compound quantities, or factors, are placed, as can be readily seen from the following examples.
