### multiplication of polynomials by a trinomial

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)

Hi;

Are you supposed to do it by hand?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

### Re: multiplication of polynomials by a trinomial

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

### Re: multiplication of polynomials by a trinomial

I used a computer! But if you show me what method you are supposed to use I will assist with the steps?

### Re: multiplication of polynomials by a trinomial

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
