**5.3 Division of Polynomials**Concepts 1, 2, 3**5.3.1 Division by a Monomial**• Example:**What if you are dividing by a polynomial?**• The last method we did won’t work. • There are three ways to do this: • LONG DIVISION • SYNTHETIC DIVISION • FACTORING (we will cover next week)**5.3.2 Long Division**• Number example • How do we divide 867 by four using long division? • Similar when using polynomials?**Divide the polynomial using long division.**CHECK: (divisor)(quotient)+(remainder) = what was divided**5.3.3 Synthetic Division**• It is a shortcut way of doing long division. • Only works when divided by something in the form x – c • Set-up: • Degree is always one less than the original**HOMEWORK FOR 5.3**• Pg. 338 – 340 • #10, 24, 32, 37, 44, 57
