Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to factor the polynomial in the numerator \[4x ^{2}+x3\] the denominator is a hint that one of the factors of the polynomial is x+1 you know that something times x+1 is \[4x ^{2}+x3\] so by trial and error with FOIL you can see that the other factor is 4x3
