Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm not sure, it's factoring, but idk if you can do it to both numerator and denominator?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and (a+3)(a2) for the numerator, and then you cancel (a2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you get (a3)/(a+1), if my maths is right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you in math 95? This looks like a quadratic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it should end up as a^2+b+c format

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could factor the numerator, but it doesn't get you anything you could then write the equation as: [(a3)(a+2)]/[(a+1)(a2)]
