I want to find the solution of vector X. I am using text from Alan F. Beardon Algebra and Geometry as attached. I dont know how the solution is derived for the following equation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

## x + (x × a) = b ##

The second solution when ## a \times b \neq 0 ## then X cannot be b. Is it possible to factorize x out from the Left-hand-side of the above equation?
