What is unknown?

Simplification

Reasoning:

i) By using the distributive law, we can carry out the multiplication term by term.

ii) In multiplication of polynomials with polynomials, we should always look for like terms, if any, and combine them.

Steps:

i) $$\left( {5{\rm{ }} - {\rm{ }}2x} \right)$$ $$\left( {3{\rm{ }} + {\rm{ }}x} \right)$$

\begin{align}&= 5{\rm{ }}\left( {3 + x} \right){\rm{ }} - 2x\left( {3 + x} \right)\\&= {\rm{ }}15 + 5x{\rm{ }} - 6x - 2{x^2}\\&= {\rm{ }}15 - x - 2{x^2}\end{align}

ii) $$\left( {x{\rm{ }} + {\rm{ }}7y} \right)$$$$\left( {7x{\rm{ }} - {\rm{ }}y} \right)$$

\begin{align}&= {\rm{ }}x{\rm{ }}\left( {7x{\rm{ }} - {\rm{ }}y} \right){\rm{ }} + {\rm{ }}7y{\rm{ }}\left( {7x{\rm{ }} - {\rm{ }}y} \right)\\&= {\rm{ }}7{x^2} - xy{\rm{ }} + 49xy{\rm{ }} - 7{y^2}\\&= {\rm{ }}7{x^2} + 48xy{\rm{ }} - 7{y^2}\end{align}

iii) $$\left( {{a^2}{\rm{ }} + {\rm{ }}b} \right)$$ $$\left( {a{\rm{ }} + {\rm{ }}{b^2}} \right)$$

\begin{align}&= {\rm{ }}{a^2}\left( {a + {b^2}} \right){\rm{ }} + {\rm{ }}b\left( {a + {b^2}} \right)\\&= {\rm{ }}{a^3} + {a^2}{b^2} + ab + {b^3}\end{align}

iv) $$\left( {{p^2}{\rm{ }} - {\rm{ }}{q^2}} \right)$$ $$\left( {2p{\rm{ }} + {\rm{ }}q} \right)$$

\begin{align}&= {\rm{ }}{p^2}{\rm{ }}\left( {2p + {\rm{ }}q} \right){\rm{ }} - {\rm{ }}{q^2}\left( {2p{\rm{ }} + {\rm{ }}q} \right)\\&= {\rm{ }}2{p^{3{\rm{ }}}} + {p^2}q - 2p{q^2} - {q^3}\end{align}
