Use long polynomial division to rewrite

displaymath183

Answer.

displaymath185

Solution.

Divide the leading term tex2html_wrap_inline203 of the numerator polynomial by the leading term 2x of the divisor:

displaymath187

Multiply "back": tex2html_wrap_inline207 , and subtract:

displaymath188

Divide the leading term tex2html_wrap_inline209 of the bottom polynomial by the leading term 2x of the divisor:

displaymath189

Multiply back:

displaymath190

and subtract:

displaymath191

One more step! Divide again:

displaymath192

Multiply "back", and subtract:

displaymath193

Consequently, we obtain:
