    Exclamation 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.
