Rewrite simple rational expressions in different forms; write a(x)/b(x) in the form q(x) + (r(x)/b(x)), where a(x), b(x), q(x), and r(x) are polynomials with the degree of r(x) less than the degree of b(x), using inspection, long division, or, for the more complicated examples, a computer algebra system.
