# Multiply: (2x2y2 − 5xy2) by (X2 − Y2) - Mathematics

Multiply:
(2x2y2 − 5xy2) by (x2 − y2)

#### Solution

To multiply, we will use distributive law as follows:

$\left( 2 x^2 y^2 - 5x y^2 \right)\left( x^2 - y^2 \right)$

$= 2 x^2 y^2 \left( x^2 - y^2 \right) - 5x y^2 \left( x^2 - y^2 \right)$

$= 2 x^4 y^2 - 2 x^2 y^4 - 5 x^3 y^2 + 5x y^4$

Thus, the answer is $2 x^4 y^2 - 2 x^2 y^4 - 5 x^3 y^2 + 5x y^4$ .
