How do you do?:
x^2+1

x^41
Thanks!
Try to factor wherever you can so you can reduce as much as you can.
Factors of x^4  1 are (x^2 + 1)(x^2  1).
Now we have:
x^2 + 1

(x^2 + 1)(x^2  1)
Do you see a common factor to cancel out in both the numerator (top) and denominator (bottom) to reduce this fraction?
I hope this will help.
oh, wow, thanks
it would be x^21
