Unformatted text preview: inverse of 3 is 3.) 3. Bring down the first coefficient as shown. 4. Multiply the first coefficient by the divisor, 3. Then write this product under the second coefficient. 5. Add the second coefficient with the product and write the sum as shown. 6. Continue this process of multiplying and adding until there is a sum for the last column. The numbers along the bottom row are the coefficients of the quotient with the powers of x in descending order. The last coefficient is the remainder. The first power is one less than the highest power of the polynomial that was being divided. The division answer is ....
