Directions: Perform the indicated divisions.
The problem:
(8x^36x^2+2x)/(4x+1)
This is what i did and what i got:
(4x^5)/(5x) =
The answer that i got was:
0.80x^4
It is so wrong it hurts. How in the world did you get
(8x^36x^2+2x) is equal to 4x^5 ?
There are no x^5 in the sentence.
Instead of that, factor 2x out of it.
2x(4x^2 3x 1)=2x(4x+1)(x1)
Put that over the denominator and it amazingly comes to a solution rapidly.

I'm trying to perform the indicated operations, and reduce to lowest terms, but I'm not sure if I got the correct answer. The question is y5/(x^2+5x)+(xy+5y) + 1/x+y  2/x+5....I got y6, but am not sure if that is correct.
