If you are lucky enough to get a remainder of
zero when dividing, then the divisor divides
evenly into the dividend.
This means that the divisor is a factor of the
dividend.
For example, when dividing 3 into 192, the
remainder is 0. Therefore, 3 is a factor of 192.
Dividing polynomials works just like long
division. In fact, it is called long division!
Before you start dividing:
1. Make sure the divisor and dividend are in
standard form (highest to lowest powers).
with a coefficient of 0 as a place holder.

Divide 6x3 – 16x2 + 17x – 6 by 3x – 2
Use long division to divide x4 – 10x2 + 2x + 3 by
x–3
When your divisor is of the form x  k, where k
is a constant, then you can perform the
division quicker and easier using just the
coefficients of the dividend.
This is called fake division. I mean, synthetic
division.
Synthetic Division (of a Cubic Polynomial)
To divide ax3 + bx2 + cx + d by x – k, use the following
pattern.
k a b c d
ka
a
= Multiply by k

Coefficients of Quotient (in decreasing order)
Synthetic Division (of a Cubic Polynomial)
To divide ax3 + bx2 + cx + d by x – k, use the following
pattern.
k a b c d
ka
= Multiply by k
a
Important Note: You are always adding columns using synthetic
division, whereas you subtracted columns in long division.
Synthetic Division (of a Cubic Polynomial)
To divide ax3 + bx2 + cx + d by x – k, use the following
pattern.
k a b c d
ka
= Multiply by k
a
Important Note: k can be positive or negative. If you divide by x
+ 2, then k = -2 because x + 2 = x – (-2).
Synthetic Division (of a Cubic Polynomial)
To divide ax3 + bx2 + cx + d by x – k, use the following
pattern.
k a b c d
ka
= Multiply by k

Important Note: Add a coefficient of zero for any missing terms!
Use synthetic division to divide x4 – 10x2 + 2x + 3 by
x+3
Evaluate f (−3) for f (x) = x4 – 10x2 + 2x + 3.
If a polynomial f (x) is divided by x – k, the
remainder is r = f (k).
This means that you could use synthetic division
the remainder.
Divide 2x3 + 9x2 + 4x + 5 by x + 3 using synthetic
division.
Use synthetic division to divide
f(x) = 2x3 – 11x2 + 3x + 36 by x – 3.
Since the remainder is zero when dividing f(x) by
x – 3, we can write:
f ( x)
 2 x 2  5 x  12,
x 3
so f ( x)  ( x  3)(2 x2  5x 12)
This means that x – 3 is a factor of f(x).
A polynomial f(x) has a factor x – k if and only if
f(k) = 0.
This theorem can be used to help factor/solve a
polynomial function if you already know one
of the factors.
Factor f(x) = 2x3 – 11x2 + 3x + 36 given that x – 3
is one factor of f(x). Then find the zeros of f(x).
Given that x – 4 is a factor of x3 – 6x2 + 5x + 12, rewrite
x3 – 6x2 + 5x + 12 as a product of two polynomials.
Find the other zeros of f(x) = 10x3 – 81x2 + 71x + 42
given that f(7) = 0.
