4. anonymous

okay!

5. Nnesha

you need to set divisor equal to 0 $\huge\rm x-2 = 0$ solve for x x= ?

6. anonymous

2!

7. Nnesha

|dw:1438006179733:dw| just write coefficients bring the leading coefficient straight down multiply by 2 write ur answer above the line

8. anonymous

i have to find the quotient

9. Nnesha

2 times 1 = 2 |dw:1438006361521:dw| now combine 2+4 and then repeat the pattern
