u can do this \[ \large \frac{A+B}{C}=\frac{A}{C}+\frac{B}{C} \] and then simplify each fraction separatedly

complicated?

\[ \large \frac{-36x^3-6x^2+12x}{-6x}= \frac{-36x^3}{-6x}+\frac{-6x^2}{-6x}+\frac{12x}{-6x} \]

u got the powers wrong.

OpenStudy (helder_edwin):

remember this \[ \large \frac{a^m}{a^n}=a^{m-n} \]

okay. so 6x = 1x-2x^2

OpenStudy (helder_edwin):

no just check the powers, the coefficients are ok

factorise the numerator \[\frac{-6x(6x^2 + x - 2)}{-6x}\] cancel the common factor

so its 6x^2 + x -2
