    Exclamation Long Division with Rational Equation ASAP

    Use long division to write the rational expression (x^4-3x^3+2x^2-3x+7) over (x^2+5) in the form of q(x) with the q(x), d(x) and r9x) polynomials and deg(r(x))<deg(d(x))

    Re: Long Division with Rational Equation ASAP

    ASAP? Hadn't you better get started? I see immediately that the "x^2" part divides into "x^4" exactly x^2 times. What is x^2 times x^2+ 0x+ 5? (Don't forget the "0x" term.) What is left when you subtract that from x^4- 3x^3+ 2x^2- 3x+ 7?
