Simplify the expression

Original problem:

(3x^2+10x-8)/(3x^2-17x+10) x

(2x^2 + 9x -5)/(x^2 + 3x-4)

The answer I got was:

(3x +4)(x-2)/ (3x-2)(x-5)

x (2x-1) ( x +5)/ (x +4) (x-1)

so basically the problem could not be simplified more:

Is this right

Thank you

(3x-2)(x+4)(2x-1)(x+5)

----------------------

(3x-2)(x-5)(x+4)(x-1)

note x+4 top and bottom
