    algebra simplify

    Apparently \frac{1}{28}(2x-1)^7 + \frac{1}{24}(2x-1)^6 = \frac{1}{168}(2x-1)^6(12x+1) I can't see it, I'd appreciate some help.

    Take out a common factor of (2x - 1)^6.

    This gives

    (2x - 1)^6\left[\frac{1}{28}(2x - 1) + \frac{1}{24}\right]

    Can you go from there?
