I am confused on this! In my class we are to detail the process of polynomial division when the divisor is a monomial. Demonstrate the process with an example.

    yes that would be nice because this is so confusing to me. Also what does the ^ mean.

    hopefully this will answer your questions http://www.sosmath.com/algebra/factor/fac01/fac01.html and the ^ means to the power of so x^2 would mean xsquared

    3x +2 ------------------ x^2 |3x^3 +2x^2 +4x -3x^3 ------------- 2x^2 -2x^2 ---------- 4x <- remainder Since 4x/x^2 = 4/x 4 3x^2 +2 + ---- x
