It should read $x(x^{2}-6x+1)$. If you multiply (a form of checking your work when factoring) the "answer" from the problem you would have: $x(x^{2}-6x)$ $x^{3}-6x^{2}$ You have lost the final $x$ term.

After you claim an answer you’ll have 24 hours to send in a draft. An editor will review the submission and either publish your submission or provide feedback.
