i am not sure what you mean. did you mean to type: $\frac {6x^2 + 7x - 18}{3x - 4}$ ??

you should type: (6x^2 + 7x - 18)/(3x - 4)

or learn to use LaTeX

in any case, make sure you typed what you meant to type. because unless you're doing long division of polynomials or synthetic division in class, this does not have a nice answer. the answer would be: $2x + 5 + \frac 2{3x - 4}$
