Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to divide polynomials using long division. You will start by taking the first term of the binomial and dividing it into the first term of the trinomial. If you can't divide the second term, then you will need to multiply the binomial and continue the process until you can no longer divide. It's important to remember to subtract every term in the line and distribute the negative sign to both terms.

Lesson Description:

Dividing polynomials using long division

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
