woah where did that come from?? o..o
i understand

but i'm a little unsure of where the 3 comes from ad i'm assuming the -4 is to balance things out

It's not necessary. I noticed there there was an x^3 in the numerator and denominator and no other powers of x so I simplified and differentiated at the time. I wouldn't have used polynomial long division for a calculus problem if it were more complicated.
