This is my answer: Dividing a polynomial by a binomial is quite similar to the method of long division that is taught in elementary school; the technique is the same; the difference being that division of polynomials involves variables instead of just numbers. Therefore, Understanding the concept of long division is imperative in understanding division involving polynomials. However, in order to fully understand how to divide a polynomial, you have to be knowledgeable on how to multiply monomial terms with variables. Multiplying monomials terms with variables is the same process as when multiplying numbers in long division. You also have to know how to subtract terms, which is the exact process as in long division as well.

Does this sound right?
