If we're asked to expand an irrational partial fraction, we need to rationalize it first, right? I've forgotten (well not totally) how to perform polynomial division. Here are a few examples:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. (1000x +1000000)/(.4x + 200).

For this one I got 50000.

2. (500x + 60000)/(x+100).

For this one I got 600, is that right?

It doesn't feel like I'm doing them correctly, if my answers are wrong can somebody walk me through them?
