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. rz4’1 x + 3 x2 + 5x + 6 _. ,/ «z+‘r°>\// 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. . . 3x3—5x2+6x—7 Ex2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
