Here is the algebraic progression of multiplying these linear functions.

We can see below that, just as we suspected on the first page, we end up with a parabola.

We can conclude that when we multiply two linear functions together, we will result with a pparabola, because we will get a quadratic function.

This simply means that we will always end up with an term in our function that will be the highest degree of X.
