  1. x^3-5x^2-50x/x^4+10x^3
    should have been properly parenthesized as follows:
    (x^3-5x^2-50x)/(x^4+10x^3)
    Start with the factors common to all terms in each of numerator(x) and denominator (x³):
    x(x²-5x-50)/(x³(x+10))
    Now factorize the quadratic expression of the numerator:
    (x(x+10)(x-5))/(x³(x+10))
    Cancel common factors, stipulating that x≠0 and x≠-10,
    (x-5)/x²
