## Annetta_Martin 2 years ago When using synthetic division on (4x3 - 2x2 + 5x + 7) divided by (x + 2), which is the top line representing the dividend? 4 3 -2 5 7 4 2 5 7 4 -2 5 7 4 3 2 2 5 7

1. Annetta_Martin

I think it's B

2. Peter14

it looks like it's just the coefficients of 4x3 - 2x2 + 5x + 7 careful with the sign...

3. Annetta_Martin

Ok, checking...

4. Annetta_Martin

It's D then

5. Peter14

it's C. where did you get D?

6. Peter14

@Annetta_Martin how did you get D?

7. Annetta_Martin

I wrote my equation wrong :(

8. Peter14

oh, I see.

Another question regarding synthetic division...

10. Annetta_Martin

When using synthetic division on (3x4 - 2x2 + 6x + 8) divided by (x - 3), which is the top line representing the dividend?

11. Annetta_Martin

I got 3 0 -2 6 8, am I correct?

12. Peter14

the dividend is what you start with, the divisor is what you divide it by, and the quotient is the answer, right?

13. Peter14

yes, you are right.

14. Annetta_Martin

Thank you!

I sent you my question in pm
