2. try factoring the top.
If this problem is possible, a factor is (5x-3)

(5x-3)( 5x +or-6 to get 18)

(5x-3)(5x-6)
hey are you sure it was not
25 x^2 -45 x + 18 ?????

6. OH !!
remainder allowed

just do long division
5x - 5
with remainder of 3
so

5x - 5 and 3/(5x-3)

1. ### Calc again sorry

4) The graph of y = (x)/(1+25x^2) for x is greater than or equal to 0 has a horizontal tangent at x = what. So what I did was find the first derivative. I did the quotient rule and ended up with x50x - 1+25x^2 ---------------
