The distance covered by an object is governed by the expression x3 + 3x2 + 2x. If the time taken to cover this distance is given by x + 1, what is the expression that governs the speed of the object? x2+2x x2+2x−1x+1 x+2 x2+1x+1

    what a weird way to ask you to find \[\frac{3^3+3x^2+2x}{x+1}\]

    they made a silly word problem is all distance divided by time is rate, so really they are asking you to divide one polynomial by another

    i wrote above exactly what it is asking in math rather than in words, namely it is asking for \[\frac{x^3+3x^2+2x}{x+1}\]

    I didn't learn anything about polynomials yet I don't know which one it would be

    it is almost impossible for me to show you how to divide polynomials here you can read about it if you like on the other hand, if you just want the answer, once you know that the question is really a division problem, and since you are on the computer, use the computer to solve it

    look at "alternate forms" you will find \(x(x+2)\) which is not an answer choice, but it is the same as \[x^2+2x\]

    you can pay if you want special features, but no, it is free also very smart, so be careful how you use it
