    Add something to the numerator and take the same thing away. Think for a bit about what you should add and take away. If you can't think of it, starting from the RHS should give you the idea.

    I'm sorry I'm really confused, what do you add something then take it away?

    If you don't see it then start from the RHS and try to get the LHS. Reverse the process to go from the LHS to the RHS.

    I'd say long division?

    Now that you've already done it, the method that Morgan was referring to is:

    \displaystyle \frac{x^3}{1+x^2} \equiv \frac{x^3  +x - x}{1+x^2}\equiv \frac{x^3 +x}{1+x^2} - \frac{x}{1+x^2} \equiv x - \frac{x}{1+x^2}

    Which is much cleaner and nicer than long division, in my opinion.
