So, I have examples in my math book, and it says study the examples until you understand how the answer was obtained. This one confuses me:
Looking at the answer, I have these questions:
1. Why does 5 end on the bottom of the fraction bar? Why does 5 exist anyway? The answer to -5/25 is -0.2, so why not use that number instead of 5?
2. Why is the negative sign on the outside of the fraction?
3. Why does end on top and on bottom?
I'm thinking the answer should be: but that is not the answer. What am I doing wrong? What is the step by step process for dividing polynomials?
