    Polynomial Division

    Question: (It's a polynomial division question)
    Find the quotient of \frac{5b^3+7b^2+12}{b+2}

    Attempt:
    I have done the working but I find it hard to type it here using latex. So, I got the answer which is 5b^2-3b and there was the reminder which is 12+6b.
    So, is the final answer: 5b^2 - 3b + \frac{6b+12}{b+2}
    ?

    No.

    \frac{6b+12}{b+2}=\frac{6(b+2)}{b+2}=6

    The quotient is 5b^2-3b+6 and the remainder is 0.
