    Code:
               x^2 - x - 2 + 3/(x+1)
          ______________________
    x + 1 | x^3 + 0x^2 -3x + 1
            x^3 +  x^2
             -------------
                - x^2 - 3x
                - x^2 -  x
                 ----------
                       -2x + 1
                       -2x - 2
                       ---------
                             3
    I think this site: Polynomial Long Division will help you see the detail in the steps. It's just like long division with numbers.
