[tex]\frac{4x^{4}-8x^{3}+5x^{2}-2x-1}{2x^{2}-3x-2}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I started of by breaking the bottom part down into (2x+1)(x-2) which then allowed me to set...

[tex]\frac{A}{(2x+1)}[/tex]+[tex]\frac{B}{(x-2)}[/tex]

The problem is from here I tried synthetic division however it gave me an answer that did not make any sense. Am I setting this up right or have I messed up already? Thanks guys.
