1. For the coefficients, we just divide them. We know 8 divided by 2 makes 4. For
2. the bases of x, however, we want to subtract their exponents. We have 7 minus
3. positive 1, which is 6. Another way to think about it is we would have x to the
4. 6th left in the numerator. So 4x to the 6th is our first term. 6x to the 4th
5. would be our second term. 12 divded by 2 makes 6. And x to the 5th divided by x
6. to the 1 makes x to the 4th. Our last term should be negative 3x squared. 6
7. divided by 2 equals negative 3. We know it's negative because the sign is
8. negative. And then x to the 3rd divided by x to the 1 is x squared, or x to the
9. 2nd. Here's the answer to dividing this polynomial. Great work if you got it
10. right.
