# Algebra 1

Hi I really need help with this problem, thanks.
Divide (20x^2-12x+8)/(2x+8)
these are the choices:
A. 10x-34+ 280/2x-8
B. 10x+34+ 280/2x-8
C. 10x+46+ 376/2x-8
D. 10x-46+ 376/2x+8
Thanks so much.

1. divide top and bottom by 2
(20x^2-12x+8)/(2x+8)
= (10x^2 - 6x + 4)/(x+4)
using synthetic division after that I got
= 10x - 46 + 188/(x+4)
closest in d) they have 10x - 46 + 376/(2x+8) which would be 10x - 46 + 188/(x+4)

so the answer is d), but they should have reduced that fraction.
