(x-3)(x+5)/4x^2 * 2x-1/x^2-25=

x-3/2x^2

## To divide the expressions, we need to follow these steps:

Step 1: Factor the numerator and the denominator if possible.

- The numerator of the expression x^2 + 2x -15 can be factored as (x-3)(x+5).

- The denominator of the expression x^2-25 can be factored as (x+5)(x-5).

Step 2: Rewrite the division as a multiplication by flipping the denominator.

- We can rewrite the expression as (x^2 + 2x -15)/(4x^2) * (2x-1)/(x^2-25).

Step 3: Cancel out any common factors between the numerator and the denominator.

- In this case, we have (x+5) as a common factor in both the numerator and the denominator. We can cancel it out.

Step 4: Multiply the remaining factors to simplify the expression.

- After canceling the common factor (x+5), the expression becomes (x-3)/2x^2.

Therefore, the correct answer is a) (x-3/2x^2).
