    Easy algebra question - Quotient rule.

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm learning the quotient rule and I found that in the working of this problem 8a^3 disappears. I cant figure out how or why, it just seems to vanish. Can someone please take a look at the image and tell me what has happened to 8a^3?

    Thanks

    There's misprint in the last line. The 8a^3 should still be there.

    Thanks Debsta, it's actually Bagatrix Calculus Solved software, it's usually quiet good but seems to have lost the plot on this one. Cheers
