division(9x^3  3x^2 + 13x  5)/(3x  1) #2 20121022 14:28:33
Re: divisionHi;
Did you mean to have that period there? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20121022 14:38:05
Re: divisionHave you tried multiplying your answer by the divisor to check your work? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20121022 14:44:55
Re: divisionI think it was right but I wrote it wrong like 3x^2 + 0x  .66/3x1 and he just marked it wrong because of that. #7 20121022 14:48:58
Re: divisionHi; I am afraid I would mark you wrong too. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #9 20121022 23:42:24
Re: divisionHi! Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make.
