    Learn how to multiply binomials using FOIL and see some examples of how it works. This is also sometimes called the smiley face method. The example (2x - 5)(3x + 4) is used as an example to show the method of FOIL, the smiley face method, and the box method. This is a great intro to multiplying two binomials.
