polynomial division
4x^3 + 3x^2 - 4x + 5 is divided by (x^2 - x + 8); find the remainder and quotient. Any help would be much appreciated.

I assume you know how to divide.

the quotient is: $4x+7$

the remainder is: $-29x-51$

Can you complete the steps in between?

if i could do the steps in between what's stopping me from getting the end result? The reason why i posted was to see the working and understand how to do it, not just to get an answer.
