Expand the following:
(x^5 - 8 x^4 + 22 x^3 - 27 x^2 + 20 x - 41)/(x - 4)

Express (x^5 - 8 x^4 + 22 x^3 - 27 x^2 + 20 x - 41)/(x - 4) as a sum of fractions.
(x^5 - 8 x^4 + 22 x^3 - 27 x^2 + 20 x - 41)/(x - 4) = (-41)/(x - 4) + (20 x)/(x - 4) - (27 x^2)/(x - 4) + (22 x^3)/(x - 4) - (8 x^4)/(x - 4) + x^5/(x - 4):

(-41)/(x - 4) + (20 x)/(x - 4) - (27 x^2)/(x - 4) + (22 x^3)/(x - 4) - (8 x^4)/(x - 4) + x^5/(x - 4)
= x^4 - 4x^3 + 6x^2 - 3x - 9/(x - 4) + 8
