Algebra Examples

Step 1
Set up the polynomials to be divided. If there is not a term for every exponent, insert one with a value of .
+-+-+
Step 2
Divide the highest order term in the dividend by the highest order term in divisor .
+-+-+
Step 3
Multiply the new quotient term by the divisor.
+-+-+
++-
Step 4
The expression needs to be subtracted from the dividend, so change all the signs in
+-+-+
--+
Step 5
After changing the signs, add the last dividend from the multiplied polynomial to find the new dividend.
+-+-+
--+
++
Step 6
Pull the next terms from the original dividend down into the current dividend.
+-+-+
--+
+++
Step 7
Divide the highest order term in the dividend by the highest order term in divisor .
+
+-+-+
--+
+++
Step 8
Multiply the new quotient term by the divisor.
+
+-+-+
--+
+++
++-
Step 9
The expression needs to be subtracted from the dividend, so change all the signs in
+
+-+-+
--+
+++
--+
Step 10
After changing the signs, add the last dividend from the multiplied polynomial to find the new dividend.
+
+-+-+
--+
+++
--+
++
Step 11
The final answer is the quotient plus the remainder over the divisor.
