(12y+9)(y-5)

Multiply and simplify

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

To do this problem, we can use a process called FOIL. FOIL stands for (F)irst, (O)uter, (I)nner, (L)ast.

For "F" we multiply the first term of each parentheses: 12y and y getting 12y²

For "O" we multiply the outer terms of each parentheses: 12y and -5 getting -60y

For "I" we multiply the inner terms of each parentheses: 9 and y getting 9y

And for "L" we multiply the last terms of each paretheses: 9 and -5 getting -45

Now we add them all together: 12y² - 60y + 9y - 45

Combine like terms and our final answer is: 12y² - 51y - 45
