# Fun with Polynomials and Monomials!

Yes, I can help you with that! When multiplying a polynomial and a monomial in pre-algebra, you have to expand and simplify the terms. For example, let's take the polynomial 3v^2 + 8v - 5 and the monomial 3. To find the product, you need to multiply each term in the polynomial by the monomial:

## Example:

3(3v^2) + 3(8v) - 3(5)

9v^2 + 24v - 15

So, the product of the polynomial 3v^2 + 8v - 5 and the monomial 3 is 9v^2 + 24v - 15.
