i've just read a page in wikipedia about synthetic division Polynomial long division - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
i find it interesting and helpful.
but can i do a synthetic division if a polynomial is divided by a non-monic polynomial such as ? thanks
2. If the divisor is a non-monic linear term divide the complete quotient by the leading coefficient of the divisor to change it into a monic linear term.
3. If the divisor isn't linear you have to use long division.
