Hi im stuck in dividing the numerator by denominator: x^2 / (x^2 + x - 6) could you pls explain how this is done? the answer from quickmath is -9/(5(x+3)) + 1 + 4/5(x - 2)

Trick to avoid the polynomial long division: x²/(x²+x-6) = (x²+x-6-x+6)/(x²+x-6) = (x²+x-6)/(x²+x-6) - (x-6)/(x²+x-6) = 1 - (x-6)/(x²+x-6) Now partial fractions on the fraction that's left.
