B. −3x2+x−7

C. 3x3−6x2+5x−10

D. 3x2−x+7

First one:

(3X^2 +5)(x-2) = 3x^3 - 6x^2 +5x - 10 

 

Second one is written incorrectly, I think you meant f/g(x)

 

f(x) = 2x^2-5x-3  =  (2x+1)(x-3)     

 

then   f/g =   (2x+1)(x-3)  /  (x)(2x +1)          x cannot equal 0 or -1/2  because the denominator would be ZERO

              Simplify to     (x-3)/x                       (the (2x+1)'s  'cancel out')
