1. 0779olive

m + 3 -2/m + 24/m²

2. Kellyb11

m+3-2 ________ m+24m^2??????????

3. jimmyrep

should not the trinomial be m^2-5m+5 ?

4. Kellyb11

not for sure.... do you know for sure???

5. jimmyrep

well i'm pretty sure - what u wrote is not a trinomial

6. Kellyb11

How is it supposed to be wrote???

7. jimmyrep

it is a term in m^2 , a term in m and a number m^2-5+5 = m^2 thats why i suggested that the middle term should be 5m - maybe you made a typo m^2-5m+5 ) m^3+3m^2-2m+24

8. Kellyb11

the denominator is m^2-m+5..... sorry

9. jimmyrep

oh ok - thats alright

10. jimmyrep

division gives m + 4 with a remainder of -3m + 4 ) which can be written as m + 1 + (4 - 3m) / (m^2-m+5)

11. jimmyrep

correction - the last line is m + 4 + (4 - 3m) / (m^2-m+5)
