1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 7X2(X - 2) - (X - 2) 2. The attempt at a solution Ok, this is really simple but for some reason I can't figure out why the answer has to be (7X2 - 1)(X - 2) The process is that I have to divide both parts by (X - 2). However, if I do that, I only get 7X2 - 1. Where does that (X - 2) come from for the final answer?
