This tool will help you calculate the reverse foil value of a quadratic equation quickly and accurately.

## How to Use the Reverse FOIL Calculator

To use the reverse FOIL calculator, input the coefficients of the first and second binomial terms (a, b, c, and d). Click the “Calculate” button to get the expanded form of the FOIL multiplication.

## How It Calculates the Results

This calculator uses the FOIL (First, Outer, Inner, Last) method to expand the product of two binomials:

(a + b)(c + d) = ac + ad + bc + bd.

The calculator calculates each step and provides the expanded polynomial form.

## Limitations

– The calculator only works with numerical values.

– Empty or non-numeric inputs will result in an “Invalid input!” message.
