1. Hmm, fair enough then...

This is what Wolfram Alpha says..

i got to the point of 1 with remainder -5x - 1 but somehow i dont think thats right
I think you did the same as me, but mixed up signs a bit. Remember its taking away a -ve number so it becomes +ve

This is so hard and its only the 1st part of the method
3. (Original post by maxfire)
Cos if it was +2...

Having -2 at the end changes it a lot, and I doubt you'd get something like that in C4.
Improper partial fractions...

That link did help, thanks.

Anon, you did get it right , how did you do it?

my signs seem right unless you divided them the wrong way round

which one is which?

erm, i think you must have divided them the wrong way round then

Ach! This has just reminded me I have maths homework to do

Maybe...

I divided the terms (I can't show the full method on latex I don't think) to get the 1, then I multiplied all of the divisor by one, and took them away from each other

lmao paint!

Looks right though.

Oh wait.

The example in the book said to divide the demoninator by the numerator

The example in the book said to divide the demoninator by the numerator
when you told us the question, you said it the other way round

you're suppose to divide the numerator by the denominator i thought
16. I've confused myself and others

My question is....

Then my method above in paint follows that
17. oh im confused now because then that would come out with your answer of 1 r 5x + 1
18. I got it, I tried both answers and it was 5x + 1 in the end.

Thanks for the help everyone!
19. yeeeeah let's
