Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hint: factor \[\Large \frac{a^4}{2a^24a^4} \times \frac{8a^3+1}{2a+4a^2}\] \[\Large \frac{a^4}{2a^2(12a^2)} \times \frac{(2a+1)(4a^22a+1)}{2a(1+2a)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can now cancel out the 2a + 1 on the right most fraction and the left one simplifies to a^2  2(1  2a^2)
