(x4)(x1)
Alright, there are 3 steps. Each of these steps will determine a "part" of the answer. First, take the first term, in this case, x. x Second, total up your integers. In this case, 4 + 1 = 5. Third, multiply both integers. 4 * 1 = 4. This gives x, 5, 4. Each part must be raised to the power of 2, 1, 0, respectively. Final answer (x^2) 5x + 4

(x4)*(x1) = ((x*x) + x*(1)) (+) ((4)*x (+) (4*(1)) = x*xx4x+4 =
x²  5x + 4; for example: x = 10 > 10²  5*10 + 4 = 100  50 + 4 = 54; I hope that was not too complicated

I think you can factor this by using the Distributive Property. So, (x  4)(x  1) would become x(4  1)
