1. Our final answer is 24 divided by x. You've really got the hang of simplifying
2. for finding this one out. To simplify this expression, we want to factor the
3. numerator and denominator. 24 is the greatest common factor for these two terms,
4. and x is the greatest common factor for these two terms. When we factor, we can
5. see that we have a 2x plus 1 in our numerator and denominator. So these cancel
6. to make 1. So, this crazy original expression turns into 24 divided by x. Pretty
7. nice.
