    \[f(x) \div g(x)=(x+1)^{-1}\div (x-2)=\frac{ 1 }{ x+1 }\div (x-2)\]

    you need to flip the (x-2) part to it's reciprocal and change the division sign to multiplication, then just multiply across like these examples. |dw:1436549101824:dw|

    I'm not really sure what more I can do here if you're not going to try. I put an example up there that's pretty much your problem with different numbers. You have to at least make an attempt for me to evaluate
