One of the fundamental skills of algebra is being able to multiply larger expressions. Here, I explain one of the most common of these structures ... how to multiply two terms by two terms.

Mathematically, we call this "multiplying a binomial by a binomial" or, simply, "a binomial product."

Before you turn away in disgust :-), let me encourage you to watch the video ... whether you already know how to do this, or not! There is something here for everyone.

If you are not good at algebra and do not understand the process (or do not care), you will learn why you have been performing this skill with great regularity all your life ... it is very natural. I actually speak about what happens at children's birthday parties.

If you are good at algebra and already know how to do this, you will be entertained with a mathematical pun. On second thoughts, maybe it will make you groan :-) ... but I think it will be worth a few minutes of your time.

Either way, I hope you enjoy the video!
