I am not sure if you meant
or
so I will work on both of them.

I suspect the problem and the expected answer is this:
(taking out
as a common factor)
We can work from there to equivalent expressions that could also be the intended answer:
To me, all of those expressions seem simpler than the original one.
You could go directly to the last one
by "performing indicated operations."
If the problem was not that, maybe this will help:
(taking out

We can work from there to equivalent expressions that could also be the intended answer:
For this proble, you could go directly to the last expression by "performing indicated operations."
