Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How many times does 8x go into 32x^3 or you can ask yourself what is 32x^3 divided by 8x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would it be 4x^3, but how do if figure out the rest 28x^287x27?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would be 4x^2 because you already have 1 of the x's with the 8x 8x(4x^2) = 32x^3 This is a long process... so... put 4x^2 above the 32x^3 and multiply 4x^2 (8x+3) and put that under the polynomial

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x^2  8x + 3  32x^3  28x^2  87x  27 32x^3 + 12x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now draw a line under the bottom part, change the signs 32x^3 + 12x^2 becomes 32x^3  12x^2 and then add. you should end up with 40x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x^2  8x + 3  32x^3  28x^2  87x  27 32x^3  12x^2  40x^2 = 87x then you ask yourself 8x times what is 40x^2 and put that above the 28x^2 and repeat the process

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh O.K. I thought you might of got stuck on the 8x times ? =40x^2. Good to hear you crossed that hurdle. Good luck
