(X 4 – 7x 2 + 10) / (x 2 – 2) We divide this by first filling in the missing parts. 10 7 2 2 4 2 + - - x x x The first step is to divide x 4 /x 2 which is x 2 2 2 4 2 10 7 2 x x x x + - - Now multiply x 2 (x 2 – 2) This is x 2 (x 2 ) – x 2 (2) which is X 4 – 2x 2 So we have 2 2 4 2 4 2 2 10 7 2 x x x x x x - + - - We now subtract those two. X 4 – 7x 2 - (x 4 – 2x 2 ) This bottom row is –x 4 + 2x 2 because of the two negatives. So we have -5x 2 left (came from -7x 2 + 2x 2 ) 2 2 2 4 2 4 2 10 5 _____ 2 10 7 2 x x x x x x x + - + - + - - Note we brought the +10 down. Now we divide -5x 2 /x 2
