Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, students learn how to divide a fourth degree polynomial by a binomial using long division. The process is similar to regular long division, but it involves dividing the x value into each term of the polynomial to simplify the problem. The instructor walks through the steps of the process, emphasizing the importance of subtraction and multiplication. By the end of the lesson, students should be able to divide polynomials with long division and find the final answer.

Dividing a fourth degree polynomial by a binomial 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.
