Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know how to use 'synthetic division'? i can try to write it if you do not

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh actually it says "long division" doesn't it. ok then take out paper and pencil and write like you would a regular long division problem \[x2x^4+8x^34x^2+x2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0something like that. or would you just like to use synthetic division it is much much easier.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i believe it wants me to work it out the way you wrote it up top

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok they we are in for a world of annoyance. fine, write what i did first. now forget about the 4 for a moment. what is \[x^4\] divided by \[x\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in other words how many times does \[x\] go in to \[x^4\] or even more simply what is \[\frac{x^4}{x}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, try this. what is \[\frac{2^4}{2}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you think \[\frac{5^4}{5}\] is without computing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you mean without computing?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i mean write your answer as 5 to a power

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok lets try this \[\frac{x^4}{x}=\frac{x\times x \times x\times x}{x}\] and when you cancel one of the x's what do you get?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should get x to a power yes?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or you can think of it as "What do I need to multiply times x to get \(x^4\)"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now lets see if we (you) can help mathater realize that \[\frac{x^4}{x}=x^?\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because we have a long division to do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't think it'll work cause they're not here anymore ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, the problem is variables are confusing if you are not used to them. that is why \[\frac{x^4}{x}=1\] cancel the x's and \[1^4=1\]!
