x^{3}- x^{2}- 5x / x^{2}-3x +2

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Heres what I got

5/x-1 + 6/x-2

but if I multiply those 2 fractions together I do not get a cubic equation on top of the line. I learned how to do these questions with linear equations on top I'm lost here though. Is there some trick that I don't know about?
