    k, well you can set it up like a normal long division problem. \[5x+3\lceil 20x ^{3}-13^{2}-60x-27\]

    because 5x goes into 20x^3 4x^2 times, you put 4x^2 on top, and work it out to \[5x+3\lceil (20x ^{3}-13x ^{2}-(5x+3)*4x ^{2})-60x-27\] (oops that should be 13x^2 up there :P)

    you keep working it out like that, only paying attention to the first terms of the divisor and dividend, until you get to the end! do you get it?
