Step 1

Place the numbers representing the divisor and the dividend into a division-like configuration.

Step 2

The first number in the dividend is put into the first position of the result area (below the horizontal line).

Step 3

Multiply the newest entry in the result by the divisor and place the result of under the next term in the dividend .

Step 4

Add the product of the multiplication and the number from the dividend and put the result in the next position on the result line.

Step 5

Multiply the newest entry in the result by the divisor and place the result of under the next term in the dividend .

Step 6

Add the product of the multiplication and the number from the dividend and put the result in the next position on the result line.

Step 7

All numbers except the last become the coefficients of the quotient polynomial. The last value in the result line is the remainder.

Step 8

Simplify the quotient polynomial.
