In this lesson, the concept of long division with polynomials is explained by starting with a refresher on how to do long division with integers. To divide polynomials, you only look at the first term of each polynomial, and divide them as you would with integers. The resulting quotient is written above the corresponding column. This process is repeated until a remainder is obtained, which is then written on top of the dividing polynomial in a fraction. This is a time-consuming process, but by taking it step by step, it can be accomplished successfully.
