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.
