U R amazing, yomi.

I know you suppose to set the problem in division form

3x + 4

2x + 5  |------------------------------------

6x^2 + 23x + 20

-6x^2 - 15x      >  3x(2x + 5)

----------------------------------

8x + 20

-8x + 20   >  4(2x + 5)

-----------------------------------------

0

But, can the problem be solve this way?

6x^2 + 23x + 20 / (5 + 2x)

(3x + 4) (2x + 5)

--------------------------------   These two will cancel out

(5 + 2x)

Answer: 3x + 4
