To simplify a multiplication product, multiply all numbers by numbers, letters by letters, roots by roots and simplify the result.

To expand products of two binomials, multiply every term in the first brackets by every term in the second brackets.

To factorise an expression of a form xΒ² + bx + c, find its roots and substitute them into (x – x₁)(x – xβ‚‚).

To expand products of two or more binomials, multiply every term in the first brackets by every term in the second brackets and do the same with additional factors.

To factorise an expression of a form axΒ² + bx + c, find its roots, substitute them into a(x – x₁)(x – xβ‚‚) and, if necessary, multiply a by one of the brackets to cancel fractions.
