Yesterday we learned how to make new functions in Python.

We left off with the “You Try” section to create a FOIL calculator.  Here is the entire code:

def foil(a,b,c,d):
 first = a*c
 outside = a*d
 inside = b*c
 last = b*d

 middle = outside+inside

 trinomial = "%sx^2 + %sx + %s"

 print(trinomial %(first, middle, last))

Next we are going to write a similar code for the square of a binomial.

Recall that the square of a binomial looks like this (a+b)^2= \mathbf{a^2+2ab+b^2}

So our code will look something like this:

def square_binomial(a,b):
 first = a**2
 middle = 2*a*b
 last = b**2

 

ASSIGNMENT: Code the rest of the square of a binomial function.
