Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to evaluate the multiplication of two functions by following a simple process. We take the two functions, multiply them, and evaluate them for a given value of x. Then, we use our basic math skills to simplify the equation and get the final solution. Through this lesson, we learn the importance of following the correct process and using our foundational math knowledge to solve problems.

Lesson Description:

How to evaluate the multiplication of two functions

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
