Can you show me how to factor x5x^26x^3, and why each step is done? I'm not sure how to factor something where the x is in front instead of the highest power, and something with both a ^2 and ^3 variable. Thanks!

ahh, should have looked at this one first.
x5x^26x^3
= x(6x^2 + 5x  1)
= x(6x + 1)(x  1)
