Divide. x^2+7x-37/x+9.

The division is done exactly the same way as the long division of numbers. The example is difficult to illustrate because we do not have the flexibility of alignment of characters at this forum.

I therefore refer to an article which explains in detail how this can be done.

If you have questions, please post.

Thank you for your prompt response. I have my homework I have to turn in in about 2 hours, but i am struggling to solve this question. Is there any way you can just give me the answer while I find a website that can show me step by step how to solve these kind of problems? I would be grateful to you. Thank you. x^2+7x-37/x+9.

Example:
x^2-7x-37/x-9

x^2-7x-37
Multiply x-9 by x to match the first term x^2
x^2-9x
Subtract
0x^2+2x-37

Again, multiply x-9 by +2 to get
0x^2+2x-18
subtract
0x^2+0x-19

So the answer is x+2 with remainder -19.

You can solve your problem in a similar way.
