# Math Help - Can I do this reduction on this math problem?

1. ## Can I do this reduction on this math problem?

If I have [n^(3)+1]/[2n²] am I correct by saying that this reduces down to [n+1]/2 or is this not correct? (I used the []'s to just clearly indicate the numerator and the denominator)

I know that n^3/n² could be reduced down to n, but I'm not sure if using that kind of logic is still ok since the numerator has the +1.

$\dfrac{n^3+1}{2n^2} = \dfrac{n^3}{2n^2} + \dfrac{1}{2n^2} = \dfrac{n}{2} + \dfrac{1}{2n^2}$
