Algebra (test corrections)

This problem was on a test and I got it wrong, and if I do it over I get half the credit back, but I need help with it plz.

(11x^2+2x^3+14+17x)/(2x+5)

My algebra teacher didn't even go over this lesson (we skipped it) and it was on the test. She says it's long division, but I don't know how to solve this problem that way. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

[put the numerator in the decending powers of x...
2x^3+11x^2+17x+14

Now divide 2x + 5 into it. Doing it here is foolhardy,but look at these examples.
