Difference of Cubes OF DOOM (Posted on 2005-02-11) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Suppose we have the follwing two identities:
(Ax-26)(Bx^2+Cx+D)=8x^3-2197
and (Ex-52)(Fx^2+Gx+H)=8x^3-2197;

Compute the quantity ((13B/2 + 2D/13 + AB)+(13F/2+2H/13+EF)).

In the expression '8x^3', only the x is cubed. So:

(4-26)(2+13+84.5)=(-22)(99.5)=-2189 = 8*1^3-2197=-2189.
