About This Quiz & Worksheet

Multiplying polynomials is a two-step process that includes multiplying each term of the first polynomial by each term of the second polynomial and then combine all of the like terms into standard form of descending powers. There's a lot to unpack and understand in that explanation, and this quiz/worksheet combo will help you improve your understanding of how to perform these calculations. The practice questions on the quiz will test you on the process of multiplying polynomials, defining how many terms you will need to multiply given the number of terms in each polynomial, and your ability to solve problems involving the multiplication of polynomials.
