Question from Ashley, a student:


The instructions say to "perform the division".

Hi Ashley,

I would first rearrange the terms in the numerator to write it

\[4x - 4 + 6x^3 - x^2 = 6x^3 - x^2 + 4x - 4.\]

Now perform long division as outlined in our response to an earlier question.

Write back if you need more assistance,
