# Chapter 5 - Section 5.7 - Dividing Polynomials - Exercise Set: 5

$5p^2$ + $6p$

#### Work Step by Step

First rewrite the expression as two fractions with a common denominator. Then reduce/simply like-terms. Remember, variables with exponents of different degrees are not like-terms, and thus cannot be combined. See image for worked out solution.
