  #### Exercise 2.

Use long polynomial division to rewrite #### Answer.

The divisor divides evenly into the numerator. The answer is: or after multiplying both sides by (x-1): #### Solution.

Divide the leading term of the numerator polynomial by the leading term x of the divisor: Multiply "back": , and subtract: Divide the leading term of the bottom polynomial by the leading term x of the divisor: Multiply back: , and subtract: One more step! Divide again: Multiply "back", and subtract: The divisor divides evenly into the numerator. The answer is: or after multiplying both sides by (x-1):  [Back] [Exercises] [Next]
