**Dr Russ**, Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 10:52amStart in the same way as you would do long division.

Set it up as

_________

(3x-3)|15x2-24x+9

then how many times does 3x go into 15x^2, which is 5x

5x

_________

(3x-3)|15x2-24x+9

15x2-15x (from 5x times (3x-3)

subtract

5x

_________

(3x-3)|15x2-24x+9

15x2-15x

________

-9x+9

I hope the formatting holds. Is this OK?
