# Division of a polynomial by a monomial

I am trying to divide this polynomial by 2x ...

$$(4x^6 - 3x^3 + 2x + 1) / 2x$$

Here's what I'm trying to do (divide all monomial by 2x) : $$(4x^6 / 2x) - (3x^3 / 2x) + (2x / 2x) + (1 / 2x)$$

Then, I obtain: $$2x^5 - 3x^2 + 1 + (1/2x)$$

I'm trying to validate my answer with Wolfram bit it doesn't work..

Seems to work: link. (plus, you'll have $\frac{3x^2}{2}$ instead of $3x^2$). In alpha, scroll down to alternative forms. –  kuch nahi Aug 25 '11 at 19:02
I'm going to delete the "monoidal-categories" tag. I suspect the OP started typing "monomial", mistyped, and/or accepted the wrong "suggestion". –  Arturo Magidin Aug 25 '11 at 19:03
@kuch Perhaps you should write you comment out as an answer so that this becomes answered. –  mixedmath Aug 29 '11 at 13:23
@mixedmath done. –  kuch nahi Aug 29 '11 at 21:54
