Solution to Example 1: The dividend is the polynomial P ( x ) = 2 x 4 − 8 x 2 + 3x − 5 and the divisior is the polynomial D( x) = x − 5. Section 4.2 Polynomial Long Division and Synthetic Division Page 2 of 17 Example 2: Synthetic division is a quick method of dividing polynomials, which can be used when the divisor is of the form D( x) = x − c. Find the quotient and remainder for 2 x 4 − 8 x 2 + 3x − 5 by using synthetic division. x −5 Solution to Example 2: The dividend is the polynomial P ( x ) = 2 x 4 − 8 x 2 + 3x − 5 and the divisior is the polynomial D( x) = x − 5. The divisor is of the form D( x) = x − c, where c = 5.

Solution to Example 1: By the Remainder Theorem, P( −4) is the remainder when P( x) = 2 x3 − 2 x 2 + 11x − 100 is divided by x − (−4) = x + 4. Example 2: Use the Factor Theorem to show that x − 2 is a factor of the polynomial P ( x) = x5 − 13 x 4 + 57 x 3 − 83 x 2 − 34 x + 120.
