Homework Help: Multiplying polynomials in Mathematica

  1. Apr 18, 2012 #1
    I have two polynomials

    (1+x+x^2+x^3) and (1+x+x^2+x^3+x^4), I'm trying to figure out how to compute the product in Mathematica, but it's not working.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Expand[(1+x+x^2+x^3)*(1+x+x^2+x^3+x^4)]
