I have 2 problems. I know that they're too easy but I don't know why my brain it's not working well.

Divide the polynoms:

1) X^6-1 : (x-1)

2) x^4-4x^3+6x^2-4x-15 : (x-1)

Any help will be appreciated!

Do you know how to do long division of polynomials? For example, take .

How many times does go into ?

times. So, take and subtract that from .

You should get .

How many times does go into ?

times. So, take and subtract it from . You should get .

How many times does go into ?

Twice. So take and subtract it from and you are done.

The final result of the division is .
