ex. find the value of x in this expression.

To find the value of x, first is to distribute x to the equations (x² - 24)

x³ - 24x + 120 = x³ - x² -24

Then transpose x³ - x² - 24 to the right side to combine like terms.

x² - 24x + 144 = 0 ( Transposing makes the sign to change ) then factor the equations.

( x - 12) ( x - 12 ) = 0

then equate each expression to zero.

x - 12 = 0 x - 12 = 0

x = 12 x = 12

so the answer is 12.

Review those ways that was used to solve the given algebraic expression.
