I dont understand how this works :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(2x^2 - 3x+6 ) / (2x+2)

I dont really understand the case using numbers either but we never divide by a+b+c etc , (ie we just divide by a single number rather than 3+5 for example)

Please explain step by step how it works. Also, why isnt the 2x and +2 separately distributive over the numerator ?
