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.
