Since a binomial has two terms, we need to "double distribute" to multiply two binomials: the first term gets multiplied by both terms in the second parentheses, and then the second term also gets multiplied by both terms in the parentheses. You should end up with four terms, and often, two of them can be combined. Terms can be combined if they are "like terms," meaning they have the same exponents.
