Pre-Algebra Examples

,
Divide the first expression by the second expression.
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.
