    Factorise.
    While it is possible to simplify it, it's actually no more simpler than what the other thing. If this year is like any other previous years, either will be accepted

    is certainly simpler than the other thing and the reason everything cancels nicely when you factorise it is because the examiners purposely made it like that. You will drop a mark at least for not factorising.

    Well sorry to say this but that means you can't factorise correctly.

    Would it count if I took 6e^6x out and put the rest in brackets? Or would that not be considered fully simplified?
    Not particularly because the simplification the examiners intended was for the 2s to cancel out nicely when you factorise the polynomial parts too. Just taking out 6e^6x doesn't really make it that much simpler but it's on the right lines.

    Are you sure that's right? Wouldn't it go to 6e^6x (3x-2)^3 (2+(3x-2))? that seems much less simple than the original answer imho.

    Not if you notice that 2-2=0...

    You're not wrong there haha. How many marks would have been lost if I left it as 12e^6x(3x-2)^3 + 6e^6x(3x-2)^4?

    1 mark. It was 4 marks so one was definitely for simplifying.
    But dw lots of people would have made the same mistake.

    Be surprised if anyone does, too busy pretending they got full marks. Fingers crossed someone does.
