8 2875 or 2875 = 8(359)+ 3 dividend = quotient(divis0r)+ remainder 8 goes into 28 3 times. 3 times 8 is 24. 28 minus 24 is 4. Bring down the
7, and so on. We can use the same strategies to divide polynomials. Ex1. Let’s consider %. We would normally factor first. Let’s try long
division.

ﬁJré x goes into x2 x times. Now we distribute x through
Jz/xra x+3 , giving us x2 +3x, and subtract from x2 +5x,
J leaving 3x+6. x goes into 3x 3 times. Now we
0 distribute 3 through x+3, giving us 3x+ 6, and subtract
from 3x+ 6, leaving a remainder of zero. The
remainder of zero means that x + 3 is a factor of
x2 + 5x + 6.
