## anonymous 5 years ago Can I simplify this algebraic fraction?

1. anonymous

$3a ^{3} - 9a ^{2} + 32a - 10 \over a ^{2} + 3a - 10$

2. anonymous

I don't think so I got this when I've tried: $= [3a^2(a-3) + 2(16a-5)]/(a^2 + 3a -10)$ can't be simplified any further, I guess ^_^

3. anonymous

the bottom can be factored into (a-2)(a+5)

4. anonymous

yeah, but that's it :)

You could do partial fraction expansion

all you have to do is simplify and not integrate lol

8. anonymous

long division -> partial fraction

9. anonymous

oh right lol , my bad ^^"
