4-64.

Use generic rectangles to multiply each of the following expressions.

  • Draw a generic rectangle. A generic rectangle where the outside upper left edge is x and the lower left edge is + 2. The bottom left edge is x and the bottom right edge is negative 5.

  • Multiply the value of the column and the value of the row to find the value of each box in the rectangle. A generic rectangle where the outside upper left edge is x and the lower left edge is + 2. The bottom left edge is x and the bottom right edge is negative 5. The interior is labeled as follows: Upper left box is x squared. Upper right box is negative 5 x. Lower left box is 2 x. Lower right box is negative 10.

  • See the hints in part (a). A generic rectangle where the outside upper left edge is y and the lower left edge is + 2 x. The bottom left edge is y and the bottom right edge is positive 3 x.

  •   A generic rectangle where the outside upper left edge is y and the lower left edge is + 2 x. The bottom left edge is y and the bottom right edge is positive 3 x. The interior is labeled as follows: Upper left box is y squared. Upper right box is 3 x y. Lower left box is 2 x y. Lower right box is 6 x squared.
