1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data x3 - x2 - 5x / x2 -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?
