1. ## 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: $\displaystyle 4x+7$

the remainder is: $\displaystyle -29x-51$

Can you complete the steps in between?

3. 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.

Okay, I do not know how to put the division symbols in Latex.

Here it is:

5. I tried but I could not figure out how to symbolize this kind of division in Latex. Hope the image above helps!
