I don't normally do this but after this thread you probably deserve it

Expand the stuff inside the brackets and then you are done.

Alternatively, expand from the start and then factorise.

can someone give me a method to work out these type of questions please

thank you

First you should expand the double brackets, ensuring you then collect like terms, simplifying it. This should make a cubic expression. Then just divide this expression by 'x', so for example if you had 3x^3 your new answer would be 3x^2, if this makes sense. Once all your terms have been divided by 'x' simply put brackets around the new expression and write x in front of the brackets. If you wanted to check if your answer was correct, you could multiply the brackets by x and your answer should equal to the original equation

Obviously there are other ways of working the answer out, but for someone who has difficulty in these style questions this can often be the simplest method of calculation! Hope I helped xx

thats great i worked it out. Looks like i have to practise lots. thanks for the help again
5. its really simple.
1. expand brackets and simply to get x^3-x^2-6x.
Then you remove all the x's (factorise it) to get x(x^2-x-6)
2. After you have factorised it you factorise the numbers in the bracket to get x-3)(x+2)
So the answer will become: : x(x-3)(x+2)
You can check it by factorising it also ^ just means the power to eg x^2 so x squared just if anyone was wondering
