## How do you divide Trinomials by Trinomials?

Divide Trinomials: Example Question #2 Explanation: In order to divide, we must first factor both trinomials on the numerator and denominator. Notice that we now have common terms in the numerator and denominator that can be divided and cancelled. Cancel the terms in the numerator and denominator.

## Can you use synthetic division when dividing by a trinomial?

You can use synthetic division whenever you need to divide a polynomial function by a binomial of the form x – c. We can use this to find several things. One is the actual quotient and remainder you get when you divide the polynomial function by x – c.

## What are the steps to long division?

How to Do Long Division?

- Step 1: Take the first digit of the dividend.
- Step 2: Then divide it by the divisor and write the answer on top as the quotient.
- Step 3: Subtract the result from the digit and write the difference below.
- Step 4: Bring down the next number (if present).
- Step 5: Repeat the same process.

## How do you divide equations with variables?

When dividing variables, you write the problem as a fraction. Then, using the greatest common factor, you divide the numbers and reduce. You use the rules of exponents to divide variables that are the same — so you subtract the powers.

## What is another sign for division?

Other symbols for division include the slash or solidus /, the colon:, and the fraction bar (the horizontal bar in a vertical fraction).

## What are the methods used in dividing polynomials?

How To: Given two polynomials, use synthetic division to divide

- Write k for the divisor.
- Write the coefficients of the dividend.
- Bring the leading coefficient down.
- Multiply the leading coefficient by k.
- Add the terms of the second column.
- Multiply the result by k.
- Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the remaining columns.

## What are the steps to dividing polynomials?

- Divide the first term of the numerator by the first term of the denominator, and put that in the answer.
- Multiply the denominator by that answer, put that below the numerator.
- Subtract to create a new polynomial.

## Is 10x a polynomial?

10x is a polynomial. In particular, for an expression to be a polynomial term, it must contain no square roots of variables, no fractional or negative powers on the variables, and no variables in the denominators of any fractions. That’s why 10x is a polynomial because it obeys all the rules.

## When would you not use synthetic division to divide polynomials?

We can only divide by a binomial whose leading coefficient is 1–thus, we must factor the leading coefficient out of the binomial and divide by the leading coefficient separately. Also, the binomial must have degree 1; we cannot use synthetic division to divide by a binomial like x^{2} + 1.

## Do you add or subtract in synthetic division?

The process starts by bringing down the leading coefficient. We then multiply it by the “divisor” and add, repeating this process column by column until there are no entries left. The bottom row represents the coefficients of the quotient; the last entry of the bottom row is the remainder.

## How do you divide expressions?

Step 1: Completely factor both the numerators and denominators of all fractions. Step 2: Change the division sign to a multiplication sign and flip (or reciprocate) the fraction after the division sign; essential you need to multiply by the reciprocal. Step 3: Cancel or reduce the fractions.

## What is the quotient of two polynomials?

A rational expression is a quotient of two polynomials.
