The dividend is .

The divisor is .

Rewrite the expression in long division form .

Divide the first term of the dividend by the first term of the divisor.

So, the first term of the quotient is .

Multiply by and subtract.

Divide the first term of the last row by first term of the divisor .

So, the second term of the quotient is .

Multiply by and subtract.

Divide the first term of the last row by first term of the divisor .

So, the third term of the quotient is .

Multiply by and subtract.

The remainder is the last entry in the last row.

Therefore, the remainder.

The number along the bottom row are the coefficients of the quotient.

From this division the polynomial function can be written as .

Consider the quotient .
