Your function here cannot evenly factor.
The numerator does not have any similar factors to the denominator.
how do i know if a derivative when solved using the quotient rule will need to be simplified or not by factoring out a variable (i probably worded this wrong)
f'(x) = (x^3+5x+3)/(x²-1)
how do i know if while im solving this if i will need to factor something out?
