    36x^2/4x-12x/4x (you can separate those fractions like that. With that, it ends up being 9x-3 once you divide through.

    Divide 5 by 8 using grammer school long division process. 5 is smaller than 8 so put .0 after the 5. 8 goes into 5.0 .6 times. 8 times .6 is 4.8, subtract from 5.0 is .2 and so forth. Today most people who can afford a hand held calculator would plug in the setup numbers 5 and 8 and the push the divide button. However if you were stranded on a pacific island with no calculator you could always solve the fraction by hand using a stick and a sandy beach.
