x^3 - 22x + 15 \ x+ 5 When I do this normally it works out but for this one I end up with trying to subtract 5x^2 from 22x. I get the same type of problem with 2x^3 - x^2 - 12 / x - 2 Do I have to do it a different way than long divison?

Code: .....----------------------- x+5 | 2x^3 - x^2 + 0x - 12
.....----------------------- x+5 | 2x^3 - x^2 + 0x - 12
