x2 + 2x −15 is called the dividend x + 5 is
called the divisor the answer is called the quotient
1.) Divide the first term in the dividend by
the first term in the divisor. This is the first
term in the quotient.
2.) Multiply this by each term in the
4.) Bring down
Repeat the process until the remainder
can no longer be divided.
We write the answer as:
We check the answer by making sure that:
quotient * divisor + remainder = dividend
5. Bring down the next terms and treat this as the new
dividend. Start the
process over again. Repeat this until the remainder can no longer be
divided. This happens when the degree of the remainder is less than
the degree of the divisor.
