It would be terribly messy trying to do it in the forums...the TeX code would be a bit long... xD
However, if you have installed on your computer, you can download the package. You can find documentation and the package download for that here.

Hello, VonNemo19!
I devised a method, but I don't recommend it.Can long division be done with LaTexX?
As Chris pointed out, it's messy and takes a bit of planning.
Example: .
. .
[tex]\begin{array}{ccccccccc}
& & & & x^2 & - & 3x & + & 4 \\
& & -- & -- & -- & -- & -- & -- & -- \\
x-2 & ) & x^3 & - & 5x^2 & + & 10x & - & 8 \\
& & x^3 & - & 2x^2 \\
& & -- & -- & -- \\
& & & & 3x^2 & + & 10x \\
& & & & 3x^2 & + & 6x \\
& & & & -- & -- & -- \\
& & & & & & 4x & - & 8 \\
& & & & & & 4x & - & 8 \\
& & & & & & -- & -- & --
\end{array}[/tex]
here's some more of it that didn't fit with the 450 char limit (seek the aesthetics, much will be found )
