**Steve**, Sunday, September 15, 2013 at 4:58pmwhat is (m-5n)(m+6n)/(m-5n) ?

Don't be put off by the extra variable. You can easily factor

m^2+m-30, right? That's what you have if n=1.

**Steve**, Sunday, September 15, 2013 at 5:26pmThere is an interesting video showing how to do long division with two variables at

Scroll most of the way down the page to where the heading is "More than One Variable".

Follow its method using your problem and it should become clear.
