# Thread: long division of polynomials

1. ## long division of polynomials

(8x^5-2x^3+4x^2+5x+7) / (2x^2-x)

When i worked it out I came out with this answer

4x^3+2x^2+2 + 7x+7/2x^2-x

but Im not sure if this is the correct answer to the problem

Pomp.

3. Just to reassure you, your answer is correct, they have just expressed it slightly differently.
