Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If so, then (using long division): \[{2x^43x^311x^240x1 \over x4}=2x^3+5x^2+9x4{17 \over x4}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have to factor the numerator, and one of those factors should be (x4) which can cancel out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, then do it till you stop at the point where you have a reminder of 17. At this point, you will have a quotient equal to 2x^3+5x^2+9x4. And a reminder of 17. The original expression is equal to = the quotient +the reminder/divisor.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@halcyon_m: it wouldn't work that way, since x4 is not a factor of the numerator.
