Re: Polynomials - Division and Long Division

Nice! The only thing i'd reccomend is showing what to do when there are "missing terms". In this case, you need to write out the missing terms with coefficients of zero for the algorithm to work.


A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm.

Re: Polynomials - Division and Long Division

Good point ... it would be good to have a slightly more complicated example, too.

Re: Polynomials - Division and Long Division

Added an example with missing terms ... does it look OK?
