x^3 + 49 / x^2 + 5x + 4
The Attempt at a Solution
Since the numerator has an x cubed, but the denominator only has an x squared, I know I need to divide the numerator by something.
I'm not sure what, but maybe the denominator?
At some point I know I need to factor the denominator, and I got (x+4)(x+1).
Once I get that top part simplified I think I know what to do, I'm just not sure how to simplify.
