In the example (a+b)(cd+e) you distribute (multiply) 'a' to get 'acad+ae' and then you distribute '+b' to get 'bcbd+be'. So the answer to (a+b)(cd+e)= acad+ae+bcbd+be.  In another example (ab)(cd+e) you distribute (multiply) 'a' to get 'acad+ae' and then you distribute 'b' to get 'bc+bdbe'. So the answer to (ab)(cd+e)= acad+aebc+bdbe.
