Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok Well you can proceed this way: You want to try and get rid of as many powers as you can. Why not try dividing the numerator and denominator by t^3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh wait that doesn't help sorry. I'm so used of thinking of limits going to infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok t^41 is easy to factor. If you think of letting t^2 = x, then you get (x^21) which is easily factorable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1t^31 is a bit trickier. Do you remember that one way to this is to try finding all factors of your constant term (here it's 1) and plugging it into t^31 and see which ones give you zero. This number (say "a") will then be a factor of the form (ta). Then, you can use long polynomial division to find out the other factor by dividing t^31 with (ta)
