Turning Crazy help me please

I need help with this math problem and it's making me crazy.

(9a²-3a)/-3a+(a+2)(2a+1) I know the answer is: 2a²+2a+3 (seen it on my calculator).

But I can't figure out how it goes from this [(9a²-3a)/-3a+(a+2)(2a+1)] to this [2a²+2a+3].

Can anyone give me the step by step on how to resolve this?

Please help me.

$\dfrac{9a^2 - 3a}{-3a} = 1-3a$

so then we have

&(1-3a) + (a+2)(2a+1) = \\ \\

&(1-3a) + (2a^2 + 5a + 2) = \\ \\

&2a^2 + 2a + 3

Thanks from topsquark and Country Boy
