Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. 2 Long Division of Polynomials 1. Arrange the terms of both the dividend and the divisor in descending powers of any variable. 2. Divide the first term in the dividend by the first term in the divisor. The result is the first term of the quotient. 3. Multiply every term in the divisor by the first term in the quotient. Write the resulting product beneath the dividend with like terms lined up. 4. Subtract the product from the dividend.

This will occur when the degree of the remainder (the highest exponent on a variable in the remainder) is less than the degree of the divisor.

Arrange the polynomial in descending powers, with a 0 coefficient for any missing term. 2. Write c for the divisor, x – c. To the right, write the coefficients of the dividend. 3. Write the leading coefficient of the dividend on the bottom row. 4. Multiply c times the value just written on the bottom row. Write the product in the next column in the second row.

Repeat this series of multiplications and additions until all columns are filled in. 7. Use the numbers in the last row to write the quotient, plus the remainder above the divisor. The degree of the first term of the quotient is one less than the degree of the first term of the dividend. The final value in this row is the remainder.

Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. 8 The Remainder Theorem If the polynomial f(x) is divided by x – c, then the remainder is f(c).
Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. 9 Example: Using the Remainder Theorem to Evaluate a Polynomial Function Given use the Remainder Theorem to find f(–4).
Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. 10 The Factor Theorem Let f(x) be a polynomial. a. If f(c) = 0, then x – c is a factor of f(x). b. If x – c is a factor of f(x), then f(c) = 0
