# Thread: long division polynomial

1. ## long division polynomial

Divide 6(x)^4 - 20(x)^3 + 50(x)^2 + 30x - 2 by x^2 - 5x.

Is the answer 6x2 + 10x + 100

and the remainder: 530x - 2?

these numbers look weird, what did i do wrong?

Weird? How so?

Your answer is fine. Why do you assume that you are in error?

3. the answers correct?
