    Factorization help

    I know that:

    x(32-2x)(40-2x) - 2016 = 0

    can be factorised into:

    4(x-2)(x^2 - 34x +252)

    but can someone please show me the steps to how you get that exactly?

    thank you .. very appreciated.

    try expanding the first equation and divide it by (x-2) using long division.
