it this ques. correct?
or, is it like: 3x^2 (x-2) -x + 2/(x-2) ...?

either way, the solution doesn't give a real solution to the equation.

I think the correct equation is: (3x^2 (x-2) - x + 2)/(x - 2)

And the answer is 3x^2 - 1.

(3x┬▓(x - 2) - x + 2) / (x - 2)
= (3x┬▓(x - 2) - 1(x - 2)) / (x - 2)
= ((3x┬▓ - 1) (x - 2)) / (x - 2)
= 3x┬▓ - 1 ..... Quantity (x - 2) cancels out

shubhangi,
Could you copy the question right next time please? I ended up wasting time on this problem to make it work somehow until I looked it up in OG.

Umm... no it's not the book. Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to solve it after looking up in the book.

(C) 3x^2
(D) 3x^2-1
(E) 3x^2-2


\(\frac{3x^2(x-2)-x+2}{(x-2)}=\frac{3x^2(x-2)-(x-2)}{(x-2)}=\frac{(x-2)(3x^2-1)}{(x-2)}=3x^2-1\).
