Divide Using Long Polynomial Division
Set up the polynomials to be divided. If there is not a term for every exponent, insert one with a value of .
--++
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.
--++
-+
+
Pull the next terms from the original dividend down into the current dividend.
--++
-+
