How can I simplify this expression? As it is already factorised (factored) I do not see what else I can do to simplify it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x(9x+2) / x^{3}(x-2)

The only thing that I can think of is if I unfactorise everything to give the following:(although it doesn't seem to be very simplified from the original expression)

x^{2}+ 2x / x^{4}- 2x^{3}

which gives.... 2x / x^{2}- 2x^{3}
