Partial fraction integration with unclear roots
Let's look at a simple example like 1 x 3 + 2 x + 1 here. We know that the denominator has a real root between 0 and 1 (could go closer, but that's not the point). By the concept of slope of a cubic being always positive or always negative, now I need to turn it into ( a x + b / quadratic ) + ( 1 / linear form ).. For that, I'm going to need that root. So, in general, like the case of cubic where the roots are hard to calculate (with non real ones being in pairs as per theory), is there another way to factorise the denominator into linear and quadratics, or do I need to find suitable substitutions to find the actual root of equation like in quadratic which is near about impossible during examination time? (I can take care of repeated roots and other fundamental things related to partial fractions.)

It's not a trivial amount of work but at least this is a depressed cubic already, and you can use something like Vieta's substitution. Let x = w 2 3 w to get:
x 3 + 2 x + 1 = w 3 + 1 8 27 w 3 = 0.
Multiply by w 3 :
w 6 + w 3 8 27 = 0 ,
with a larger root
w 3 = 1 + 1 + 32 27 2 C .
Then the three cube roots of w 3 are C 3 , ( ± 3 i 2 1 2 ) C 3 , from which you can get the corresponding x's.

Simplifying a Multi-Variate Fraction
I am an eighth grader in need of a little assistence. I was given a multi-variate fraction, and was told to simplfy it to lowest terms. On of my fellow classmates that is ahead of me in math, tried to explain it to me, but he didn't make sense. We ended up with an answer (shown below), but I wasn't sure how we got it. I want to know this because I feel that it might be important when I embark on Geometry next week. Any ideas?
This is the problem:
Write as a single fraction.
3b5y2b+3b+6y8b+2
Simplify your answer as much as possible
And this is what we got...
7b+26y8b

Determine whether the Sequence is decreasing or increasing.
I have the sequence ( 10 n ) ( 2 n ) ! and am trying to determine whether the sequence decreases or increases. I feel like the best way to proceed would be to use the squeeze theorem, but am unsure how to apply it to the problem.

Is there a positive integer n such that the fraction ( 9 n + 5 ) / ( 10 n + 3 )is not in the lowest term?
I found n = 2 be a solution. Is it correct?

How to simplify 3 / 2
My textbook says to do the following steps to simplify the 3 / 2
3 / 2 = ( ( 3 / 2 ) × ( 2 / 2 ) ) = 6 / 4 = 6 / 4 = 6 / 2.
However, if the fourth step is valid (1. please explain why and 2. I specifically mean where you "split" the square root into two parts), then why can't you simply do:
3 / 2 = 3 / 2
3 / 2 = 3 / 2
Why wouldn't that be valid?
My point is, are the two fractions equivalent?

How to prove that x y + y x x + y
I am trying to prove that
x y + y x x + y
I tried some manipulations, like multiplications in x or y or using x = x x , but I'm still stuck with that.
What am I missing?
