yeswey why it is flagged. i think you have not seen the ref.link i provided with the answer.

i am giving it again.

(x^2+8)/(x+3) can not be further simplified.
You can not rely on wolframalpha, it is INCORRECT SOMETIMES.
Wolframalpha can only be incorrect if the input is improper.

You need to put parenthesis or brackets to group the terms or the expression.

the problem was not, (x^2+8)/(x+3), it was x^2+8/x+3 that is x^2+(8/x)+3. Andrew please look at the question. it was not (x^2+8)/(x+3). I didnt see it wrong.

the answer i gave is correct according to the question.

yeswey Why are you saying x^2+8/x+3 as (x^2+8)/(x+3).

According to BODMAS- Order of Operations RULES, X^2+8/X+3 can not be grouped as (x^2+8)/(x+3). But it should be grouped as (x^2)+(8/x)+3.

And (x^2)+(8/x)+3 has be simplified easily to (x^3+3x+8)/x .
(x^2)+(8/x)+3 has be simplified easily to (x^3+3x+8)/x .
Thats not simplified, you make it more complicated, but its true vice verse.

Wolframalpha is just a software you can not depend on it too much. i have doubt for these software to answer math questions.
Ok I accept whatever you said. I knew, it was a good software. But I also
