This lesson on synthetic division teaches how to divide a polynomial by a linear binomial using synthetic division, with an added twist when the coefficient of x in the linear binomial is not 1. The video demonstrates how to solve this problem and check the work, ensuring that each coefficient in the quotient is divided by the coefficient of x at the end of the problem. The lesson concludes with tips on how to recognize different formulations of division problems and presents a comprehensive approach to solving such problems.
This video shows how to divide a polynomial by a linear binomial using synthetic division. Checking work is also shown. Shows how to use synthetic division when coefficient of x in linear binomial is not 1.
