Hmm ok here's example, hopefully it will help. \(\large f(x)=x^2+2x\) < Polynomial right? It has multiple.... "nom..ials" or whatever.. \(\large g(x)=x\) < Monomial! Dividing a Polynomial by a Monomial,\[\large \frac{f(x)}{g(x)}\qquad =\qquad \frac{x^2+2x}{x}\]

Two ways to simplify this? Hmm I guess one method would be to use Polynomial Long Division. Another method would be to simply split the problem into fractions like this, \[\large \frac{x^2+2x}{x} \qquad = \qquad \frac{x^2}{x}+\frac{2x}{x}\]And then simplify them individually. I dunno if that's the two methods that your book would describe :O But whatev.
