Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

(x^3 - x^2 - 12x -18)/(x-3)=(x^2+2x-6)(x-3)-36

3 isn't a zero

maybe you write equation incorrectly?

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

I copied down the wrong equation! Im sorry! The correct equation is:

h(x)= 3x^3 - 13x^2 + 8x  +12
