Use the FOIL method to find the product

(6x^3 - 9)(x^6 - 8)

(6x^3*x^6)+(6x^3*-8)-(9*x^6)-(9*-8)

6x^9-48x^3-9x^6-72

Now I am confused have I done right?

Is that all that can be done to this problem? I thought that I could continue with simplifying the coeffients of X and the exponents?

Never mind I've got a understanding now. thanks
