In this tutorial you'll learn that multiplying things like (4x-7)(-9x+5) just require the distributive property that you learned in elementary school. We'll touch on the FOIL method because it seems to be covered in a lot of schools, but we don't like it (we don't think it is good to memorize processes without knowing the why).
