Question

The question says "factor the expression":

(2+x)-2/3x+(2+x)1/3

 

I factored out the power of (2+x) with the smallest exponent, which is (2+x)-2/3 , but the next step (this is an example from a text chapter) says 

 

(2+x)-2/3(x+(2+x)), and I'm not sure how to get to the first x in the parentheses.
