Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to multiply a monomial by a trinomial. The key is to use the distributive property and make sure to multiply the monomial to every term inside the parentheses of the trinomial. We also learn how to combine like terms and how to use the product property when multiplying bases with exponents. By following these steps, we obtain a finished product that is the result of the multiplication of a monomial and a trinomial.
