Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no I just know we did basically by long division. which is (division, multiplication,subtraction,bring down the next number or term, and repeat.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Ok. Then divide the volume by x1 and then divide that answer by x+8 and that will be the length. Or you could multiply (x1)(x+8) and then divide the volume by that answer.
