    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
