The expression `(9x^3-19x-3)/(3x-5)` has to be simplified.

For `(9x^3-19x-3)/(3x-5)` , the numerator is 9x^3-19x-3. The polynomial 9x^3-19x-3 cannot be factorized further.

As a result `(9x^3-19x-3)/(3x-5)` cannot be simplified. The same is the case with `(25x^3-15x-6)/(5x-5)` as 25x^3-15x-6 and 5x - 5 do not share any common factors.

`(9x^3-19x-3)/(3x-5)` and `(25x^3-15x-6)/(5x-5)` cannot be simplified further.

`(25x^3-15x-6)/(5x-5)=` `(25x^3-25x+10x-6)/(5(x-1))=`

`=(25(x^3-1))/(5(x-1))+(10x-6)/(5(x-1))=` `5(x-1)(x^2+x+1)/(x-1)+(10x-10+4)/(5(x-1))=`

`(9x^3-19x-3)/(3x-5)` `=(x(9x^2-19)-3)/(3x-5)=`  `(x(9x^2-25)+6x-3)/(3x-5)=`

`=(x(3x+5)(3x-5))/(3x-5)+(6x-3)/(3x-5)` `=x(3x+5) +(3x-5 +3x+2)/(3x-5)=`

`=x(3x+5) + (3x-5)/(3x-5) +(3x-5 +7)/(3x-5)=` ``

`=x(3x+5) +1 + (3x-5)/(3x-5) +7/(3x-5)=`
