That is just an expression, not a whole problem. What do you need to do with that expression? Graph it? Find its roots?

Hi;

The only thing you can do with that is simplify it unless you want something more.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

21 divided by 7 equals 3.

14 divided by 7 is 2. You leave the x^3 and the x alone. So

Hi;

You are welcome but are you able to do one on your own?
