    I would use long division to simplify this since factoring did not do much. Do you need some help setting this up?

    Have you been working with polynomial division in class? I don't want to head down a path that you have not been working on. Is this a College Alg course or precalculus course?

    Yes we have, (this is college Algebra) have not encountered a problem such as this, trying to divide 4a from a2? We are currently working on polynomial division...
