## FOIL Method

Summary
The content provides an in-depth exploration of the FOIL method for multiplying two binomials, including practical examples, common mistakes, and related algebraic formulas.
• FOIL stands for First, Outer, Inner, Last, which are the steps to multiply two binomials and add the results to get the product.
• The method is applied to both addition and subtraction within binomials, with examples illustrating the process and the importance of combining like terms.
• Common algebraic mistakes are highlighted, particularly the incorrect distribution of exponents across addition or subtraction, emphasizing the correct approach.
• The Square of a Sum and the Square of a Difference are introduced as important algebraic patterns, with advice to practice FOIL to deeply understand and remember these formulas.
