Okay, I will post without the answer so everyone can practice. (Will post answer later.) I apologize if I don't know the proper area of the forum for this, but I need help understanding how to set this up. So if you could all explain your logic, that would be great.

3x^2 (x-2) - x + 2 , x cannot equal 2
x - 2


Solve for x


When I work this out I get 3x^2(x-2)-x+2 on top, and the answer explanation seems to be able to cancel part of that out, which I don't understand.

w07,

this expression "[3x^2 (x-2) - x + 2]/(x - 2)" should be in equation form. otherwise value of x cannot be calculated.

"[3x^2 (x-2) - x + 2]/(x - 2)"= [3x^2(x-2)-(x-2)]/(x-2)=3x^2-1

does it equal 0?
