    first we must aim to get the 2 terms containing x on one side of the equation the 2 terms are 2YX and 2ZX

    W=2YZ+2YX+2ZX W - 2YZ = 2YZ - 2YZ + 2YX + 2ZX

    so , according to @welshfella , we can write this: \[\Large W - 2YZ = 2X\left( {Y + Z} \right)\]

    yes - but it might be better to put both the numerator and denominator in parentheses
