Presentation on theme: "Section 5.4 Dividing Polynomials. Review of Long Division What terms do we use to describe 672 and 21? Because the reminder is zero, we know that 21 is."— Presentation transcript:
The polynomial expresses the volume, in cubic inches, of a shadow box. What are the dimensions of the box if one side is x + 5?
Remainder Theorem If you divide a polynomial P(x) of degree n>1 by x – a, then the remainder is P(a) Example: What is the remainder when Is divided by x – 3? How many ways could you find the remainder? Which is most efficient?
