(4x^3 + x^2 + 8x + 4) / (x^2 + 2)
The long division as follows:
(4x^3 + x^2 + 8x + 4)
4x^3 + 8x
Due to truncation of text, the (x^2 + 2) is not shown in the long division diagram.
4x (x^2 + 2) = 4x^3 + 8x
I'm stuck with the second step. What about the ^2 exponent?
The answer key given is 4x + 1 Remainder 2
Please help. Thanks.
