Homework Help: math correction

Posted by Jasmine20 on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 at 3:10am.

Directions: Perform the indicated divisions.
The problem:
(8x^3-6x^2+2x)/(4x+1)

This is what i did and what i got:

(4x^5)/(5x) =
The answer that i got was:
0.80x^4

It is so wrong it hurts. How in the world did you get
(8x^3-6x^2+2x) is equal to 4x^5 ?
There are no x^5 in the sentence.
Instead of that, factor 2x out of it.
2x(4x^2 -3x -1)=2x(4x+1)(x-1)
Put that over the denominator and it amazingly comes to a solution rapidly.
