    \[f(x) = \frac{ x^2 + 5x + 6 }{ x -4 }\]

    Ok it's basically just dividing number like 10/5 but instead of numbers you are dividing expressions with expressions

    because first you have to look at the numerator by segments

    no problem sure okay so look at the numanator look at the x^2 + 5x, you have to multiply the x-4 by something that will give you at least close to x^2 + 5x if not exactly that expression this is more like saying if you divide 10 by 3 the closest you can bring to 10 is 9 which 3*3

    so if you multiply x with (x-4) you will get x^2 + 4x that is at least a bit close to x^2 + 5x

    oh ok so like if we had 5/4 the closest would be like 4/4 or 6/4
