To multiply two binomials with square root terms, each term in the first binomial must be multiplied by each term in the second binomial. This can be accomplished using the FOIL method.

F=Firstterms in each binomial

O= Terms on theoutsideof each binomial

I= Terms on theinsideof each binomial

L=Lastterms in each binomial
