The question is as follows: Divide the following Polynomial and place the result into Division Statement.
Recently did this on a test and was stumped. A few calulators and classmates later, I'm still stumped.
I know that the division statement is $P(x) = q(x)*d(x) + R$. And I know that the remainder is going to be zero, or 1 degree less than the divisor. In this case, that means a linear remainder.
Trying to use long division did not work, and synthetic division is not possible. Without dividing, I can write the following, just given the information at hand.
Any and all help appreciated.
