When division occurs with a polynomial and the divisor is a monomial the first thing you need to remember is that A/C + B/C = A+B/C and then of course the opposite is true A+B/C = A/C + B/C. To begin you need to start by separating the problem, you can do so like the example below. Ex: 21x³/7x = 21/7 * x³/x = 3x² (if done correctly) The Coefficients are to be divided by one another and of course the quotient rule is to
