Example 1 Divide a Polynomial by a Monomial Answer: a – 3b 2 + 2a 2 b 3 Sum of quotients Divide. = a – 3b 2 + 2a 2 b 3 a 1 – 1 = a 0 or 1 and b 1 – 1 = b 0 or 1

Example 2 Division Algorithm Use long division to find (x 2 – 2x – 15) ÷ (x – 5). Answer: The quotient is x + 3. The remainder is 0. –2x – (–5x) = 3x 3(x – 5) = 3x – 15 x(x – 5) = x 2 – 5x

Concept

Example 4 Synthetic Division Use synthetic division to find (x 3 – 4x 2 + 6x – 4) ÷ (x – 2). Step 1Write the terms of the dividend so that the degrees of the terms are in descending order. Then write just the coefficients as shown. Step 2Write the constant r of the divisor x – r to the left. In this case, r = 2. Bring the first coefficient, 1, down as shown. x 3 – 4x 2 + 6x – 4   1 –46–4 1

Example 4 Synthetic Division Step 3Multiply the first coefficient by r : 1 ● 2 = 2. Write the product under the second coefficient. Then add the product and the second coefficient: –4 + 2 = –2. Step 4Multiply the sum, –2, by r : –2 ● 2 = –4. Write the product under the next coefficient and add: 6 + (–4) = 2. 2 –2 1 1–4 6–4 –4 2 2 –2 1 1–4 6–4

Example 4 Synthetic Division Step 5Multiply the sum, 2, by r : 2 ● 2 = 4. Write the product under the next coefficient and add: –4 + 4 = 0. The remainder is 0. The numbers along the bottom are the coefficients of the quotient. Start with the power of x that is one less than the degree of the dividend. 4 0 2 –2 1 2 –4 1–46–4 Answer: The quotient is x 2 – 2x + 2.

Example 5 Divisor with First Coefficient Other than 1 Use synthetic division to find (4y 3 – 6y 2 + 4y – 1) ÷ (2y – 1). Rewrite the divisor so it has a leading coefficient of 1. Divide numerator and denominator by 2. Simplify the numerator and denominator.

Example 5 Divisor with First Coefficient Other than 1 The result is.

Example 5 Divisor with First Coefficient Other than 1 Answer:The solution is. Check:Divide using long division. The result is. 2y22y2 4y 3 – 2y 2 0 –4y 2 + 4y –2y –4y 2 + 2y 2y – 1 + 1 2y – 1
