# The product of a monomial and a binomial is a

(a) monomial

(b) binomial

(c) trinomial

(d) none of these

**Solution:**

Correct answer is option (b). A monomial has a term and a binomial has another.

The __distributive property__ gets their product as a binomial.

For example, consider a monomial 3a and a binomial 5a + 2.

Multiplying them we get 3a(5a + 2) = 15a² + 6a, which is a binomial.

**✦ Try This: **Prove that,The product of a monomial and a binomial is a binomial.

Consider a monomial ‘x’ and a binomial (x + y)

Then, the product = x × (x + y) = x² + xy, which is binomial.
