2x3 + 2x2 - 24x

If we first look for something which divides into all three terms we will see that 2x does.

So we can factor to:

2x (x2 + x - 12)

However, we can also further factor the expression in the brackets. This is a quadratic expression and will factor to:

(x + 4) (x - 3)

So the original expression factors to:

2x (x + 4) (x - 3).

Q: How do you factor 2 x cubed plus 2 x squared minus 24 x?
