My answer is -72, but I don't know what to do next

Setup the long division as follows, solve by dividing . (x^3 + 13x^2 - 12x - 8) with (x + 2)

what ever remainder you have left you have to keep it divided by x + 2

- Firejay5

I know how to do it, it's just I don't know if I put it over x + 2 ----> \[\frac{ x + 2 }{ -72 }\]

- .Sam.

What do you have for your long division?

- Australopithecus

x+2 remains in the denominator and it should be 60

- Australopithecus

I'm pretty sure based on wolfram alphas answer

- Firejay5

@.Sam. so far

- .Sam.

The answer goes with|dw:1351049782957:dw|

- Firejay5

I know that; it's just I need help with where the -72 goes and @Australopithecus it's not 60

- .Sam.

@Firejay5 the remainder is 60

- Firejay5

No it's not it's -72 I did my work

- .Sam.

It's -76

- Firejay5

when you subtract; it's like you're distributing - into the second equation http://assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/50875f3ae4b058e80cf64652-.sam.-1351050109514-2.png

Like when you are subtracting 11x^2 - 12x - (11x^2 + 22x)

- Firejay5

you are are trying to cancel and get rid of the 11x^2

- .Sam.

yes, then you get -34 x

- Firejay5

It should be -34x - 8 - (34x + 68)

- .Sam.

-34 x 2 = -68

- .Sam.

its not +68 but its -68

- Firejay5

what's -8 - 68

- .Sam.

You should be careful there, its actually -8-(-68)

- Firejay5

Are you getting confused??? @.Sam.

- .Sam.

don't memorize the facts, just remember that it is top minus the bottom, you look back the previous steps, all you do is to subtract the top one with the bottom one, the steps that I gave you is computer generated, its completely true.

- Firejay5

you have to apply the negative -(34x + 68) to all number s in parentheses

- Australopithecus

a remainder is just part of the equation that you cannot divide, so it is left with the denominator
so in your case
60/(x+2)

- .Sam.

The actual answer is 60, why are you ignoring it? Take a look at the picture below.

- Australopithecus

I'm basing my 60/(x+2) on the wolfram alpha simplification

- Firejay5

It's not -34x - 68 it's -(34x + 68) the minus/negative in front of the parentheses goes with everything in it
