Dividing Polynomials by Monomials
To divide a polynomial by a monomial, split it up into separate fractions then reduce. Here's how this works: The entire trinomial is being divided by x, so that means each term within the trinomial is divided by x.we can write three separate fractions then with x as the denominator of each. So, .Now we just have to reduce each fraction and we have our answer: Sometimes the answer comes out evenly as in the example above, but sometimes you are left with a fraction as part of your answer. For example, Practice: Divide 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) Answers: |
