(4a³b + 5a²b² + a⁴ + 2ab³)÷ (a² + 2b² + 3ab)
Please use the long division method for this problem.
Awfully hard to show algebraic long division in this text forum.
Google "algebraic long division" and follow the method shown by numerous excellent pages.
Make sure you write it down as
(a^4 + 4a^3b + 5a^2b^2 + 2ab^3) ÷ (a^2 + 3ab + 2b^2)
I had a+ab
Oops. That'd be a2+ab
