(y^3-y^2-5y-5)/(y+1)

can someone help me solve this?

    If you examine the numerator, you will see that it is

    y^3-y^2 -5y-5
    or
    y^2(y-1) - 5(y+1)

    Something tells me there's a typo, and it should have read

    y^3+y^2 -5y-5
    which is
    y^2(y+1) - 5(y+1)
    so you have
    (y^2-5)(y+1)/(y+1)
    = y^2-5

    If it is correct as written, then visit
