Algebra (simplication/factorization probably simple!)

Anyone,

I'm reading a worked out example which goes as follows:

560 (x+9/7) (x+7/10)  =  8 (7 x+9)(10 x+7)

I understand what has happened to everything except the 560 being reduced to 8... I don't understand the idea behind why this can happen... anyone?

Cheers
