polynomial long division
Here is an example to show the method.Let and . The method looks very similar to integer division since a polynomial is somewhat similar to an integer
In the initial setting we only write the coefficients, notice that . It will then be
In the next step we se that and we multiply 1 3 -2 with 1 and then subtract the result.
Then we move down the next number, in this case a zero, and so we get -5, and multiply by -5 and subtract
as a final result we get
The result is , which translates to and .
It is also possible to write the entire polynomial, that is, writing all the ’s. Like this
