Please if you can help me with this one then I am sure I can manage through the rest. Thanks guys!
Well, in the states, students learn expansion of two terms by the FOIL acronym. First, outside, inside, last.

I, stands for inside, or the insides... 5 and x
L, stands for last, or the last (2nd) variables/numbers of the product of terms

Canada and the U.S use FOIL I suppose seeing as I'm Canadian :p
BEDMAS:Brackets, Exponets, division/multiplication, adding/subtracting.
Thank you guys so much =D I love this forum!
BODMAS -> Brackets ; Of ; Div/Multi ; Add/Sub
