Synthetic division is a method of polynomial
long division, with less writing and fewer calculations. It generally applies to
division by binomials of the form x - r.

**Impotant!**Use x as the variable (i.e. not y, z, etc.) and make sure to use plus "+" and minus "-" signs, not dashes.- Enter a polynomial with descending powers of x.

E.g.**x3**+3**x2**-9**x**+2 - Enter the binomial divisor.

E.g. x-5 (binomials of the form 3x-5, -x+12, etc. may also be used) - Click the "Divide" button.
