Divide the highest order term in the dividend by the highest order term in divisor .
 + - + - +
Multiply the new quotient term by the divisor.
 + - + - + + + -
The expression needs to be subtracted from the dividend, so change all the signs in
 + - + - + - - +
After changing the signs, add the last dividend from the multiplied polynomial to find the new dividend.
