Hi!

You might write the remainder as -2/3.  The quotient is 3x^2 + 13/3.

hi skylor

so that -66 should be 13x - 5

Hi;

So you think the answer is:

I am afraid I would mark you wrong too.

I think it was right but I wrote it wrong like 3x^2 + 0x - .66/3x-1 and he just marked it wrong because of that.

Have you tried multiplying your answer by the divisor to check your work?

as in - .66 over 3x-1. Aware me how to make it look good? lol

Hi;

-.66

Did you mean to have that period there?

(9x^3 - 3x^2 + 13x - 5)/(3x - 1)

I came up with 3x^2 + -.66/3x-1 and was mark wrong.
