hi jafrevelar

Welcome to the forum.

In the screen shot below I have shown my layout for this.  (note: it will be beneficial to keep terms in neat columns)

(i) I re-ordered the terms to start with the highest power of x, and then in descending powers.  Make sure the signs go with the terms.

(ii) Ask what must I multiply by x to get

(iii) now multiply (x + y - z) by this amount and put the results below.  Line up matching terms to make the subtraction easier.

(iv) Subtract and write in the remaining terms.

(v) Ask what must I multiply by x to get

(vi) Subtract to get the remainder.  This is zero so the division is complete.

Hope that helps,

Bob

Polynomial division techniques can be found on the main website. Type 'polynomial division' into the search box.

Prove that by cross multiplication. Multiply right hand side in Bobbym's equation with your trinomial. That's it.

There is the solution up there in post #2.

Can somebody help me with this problem? I dont have any idea how to answer it.....
Divide (4x^3yz^3+3x^4y^2z+4x^2y^2z^3+3x^3y^3z-4x^2yz^4-3x^3y^2z^2) by (x+y-z)
