I am stuck with these. No idea how to do them. Here is my first problem: x^3+x^2y+xy^2+y^3 / x+y I don't want an answer. I want an explanation on how to do it.

You can do it by long division, or you could simply note: Thus Since this is a division of a linear polynomial in x you could also rig a synthetic division for it. -Dan
