please help me simplify
(x^3+8)/(x^416).
thanks.
The denominator is cleary the differerence of two squares (X^24)(x^2+4). That can again be factored to (x+2)(x2)(x^2+4).
The numerator can be factored using the trinomial simplification..

so (x^22x+4)/((x2)(x^2+4)) is as far as I can go?
yes.
not true
