Not sure if this is the right section since I don't think this is "introductory algebra" but oh well.

I've been trying to figure out this problem for a while now but I'm not sure how to do it, could someone explain?

64a^3 + b^3 / 16a^2b^2 - 4ab^3 + b^4

___________ _____________________

16a^2 - b^2 ... 4a^2 - ab + 12a -3b

I had a few of these which were multiplication, so I just factorised them and cancelled out to simplify. Tried the same on this but it doesn't work...

P.S Ignore the dots, it was the only way I could get it set out properly.
