To divide a polynomial by a monomial, each term of the polynomial is divided by the monomial. Be careful with the sign (+ or – ) of each term in your answer.
Evaluate (x2 + 8x) ÷ x
(x2 + 8x) ÷ x
= [x2 ÷ x] + [8x ÷ x]
= x + 8
Evaluate (4y4 – y3 + 2y2) ÷ (–y2)
(4y4– y3 + 2y2) ÷ (–y2)
= [4y4 ÷ –y2] + [– y3 ÷ –y2] + [2y2 ÷ –y2]
= –4y2 + y – 2
