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
+++-
