What's the question? If it's to simplify the expression over the real field, then it's already in simplest form.

3. your supposed to divide the polynomial but i already figured it out but thanks anyways.

And, from looking at all the questions you've asked, you got a lot of help.

No-one has been offensive. Jhevon, a stalwart member of these forums, made a reasonable and light hearted observation. If you had been clearer in what your question was, I wouldn't have made the reply I did and Jhevon wouldn't have responded to my reply.

In fact, I'm offended.

I'm offended at your reply to Jhevon. A member whose reputation is beyond repute. A member who has provided help to more people than you've had hot breakfasts.

And I'm offended that, until my reply, you couldn't be bothered saying that you'd solved the question. In other words, you were willing to let someone waste their unpaid time answering a question that didn't need answering.
