exponent question #2 look over my work!

X to the second power -  4             x + 2
 
_____________________      div    ______
 
            x                                        x-2
 
 
I came up with       1
 
                         _____
 
                            X
 
factor out the x to the second power gives me (X + 2) (x - 2) over X the x-2's cancel out 
 
so I end up X + 2 over X times 1 over X + 2 the X + 2's equal 
 
         1
     ______
 
         x
