2-10.

Factor out (

*x*+ 2) from each expression, then simplify. Homework Help ✎(

*x*+ 2)^{2}− 3(*x*+ 2)(

*x*+ 2)^{3}− 4(*x*+ 2)2(

*x*+ 2)^{2}+ 6(*x*+ 2)

Think about this problem as factoring *w*^{2} – 3*w*, where *w* = *x* + 2.

(*x* + 2)((*x* + 2) − 3)

(*x* + 2)(*x* − 1)

Follow the same process as (a) above.
