The way you typed it ....

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

= 12x^2/x^2 - 3x/x^2 + 15/x^2

= 12 - 3/x + 15/x^2

if you meant for the last part to have an exponent of 2/3

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

= 4x^(4/3) - x^(1/3) + 5x^(-2/3)

I am pretty sure the question did not say

"do" this problem, were you to simplify it or what?
