Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm understanding them better but I still don't know what to do with the 2 part.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you doing long division?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Probably. Is that how the answer is normally found?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sometimes. when you can factor, that way's easier, but it doesn't look like this factors easily

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. So how is the long division done?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have it written like that, but how is it done? I'm bad at math so i need it explained step by step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0start off by dividing 6x² by 3x \[\frac{ 6x^2 }{ 3x }=2x^2\] then write 2x above the division sign and multiply it by (3x2) \[2x^2(3x2)=6x^34x^2\] then subtract dw:1441661304727:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh I see! But do I subtract 6x^3  4x^2? Or 11x^24x^2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0subtract like terms, so \(6x^3  6x^3\) and \(11x^2(4x^2)\)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like terms is the exponent right? subtract ^2's with ^2's?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then i get 7x^2 and divide that by 3x2 all over again?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no it's 11(4), so that's 15 then it's like this once you drop the other terms down dw:1441661731441:dw

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you start over again by dividing \[\frac{ 15x^2 }{ 3x }\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok 15 makes more sense lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, most times the numbers will be nice to work with, so that's usually a good check

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm writing it all on paper and I think I see the pattern now. It's slowly losing the exponent one power at a time?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1441662259557:dw um but is it supposed to completely lose the x?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 10 is supposed to be 10x, so then when you subtract you should have positive 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. i'll post my answer in a bit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x^2+5x+2 There shouldn't be an x on the last 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yup that's what i've got. thanks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you're welcome :) are you just supposed to divide this, like do they ask anything else?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the answer must be like ax^2+bx +c cuz is degree Numerator 3 and denumerator degree 1 @xFeathertailx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope, it doesn't give any instruction other than putting it in descending power of x. just a space to put the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, that's the answer then xD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well it's 2x^2+4x+5 x22x^2+x+3 2x^24x 4x 3 4x8 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It looks like the 2x² you have on top should be 2x. Then you subtracted the x terms wrong

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. isee that now. but ho w does it fit into the grid i showed you?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1441664318011:dw So the solution is \[2x+5+\frac{ 7 }{ x2 }\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh!!! Because the ^2 shouldn't have been there and the remainder goes above the bar? Now that makes sense!!!
