When mn+m^2-30n^2 is divided by m-5n, what is the quotient. Thank you

• Math -

what is (m-5n)(m+6n)/(m-5n) ?

Don't be put off by the extra variable. You can easily factor

m^2+m-30, right? That's what you have if n=1.

I don't understand. Then what is the final answer

• Math -

ahem

(m-5n)(m+6n)/(m-5n) = m+6n
