(C)

k - ( 3 - 2K^2)/k = x/k

k^2 - ( 3 - 2k^2) = x

k^2 - 3 + 2k^2 = x

x = (3k^2) - 3

I dont understand how the -2k^2 became +2k^2

k^2 - ( 3 - 2k^2) = x

k^2 - 3 + 2k^2 = x

The brackets open and negative negative make a positive

$$k - \frac{3 -2k^2}{k} = \frac{x}{k}$$;

Multiply by k: $$k^2 - (3 -2k^2) = x$$;

$$x=3k^2-3$$.
