3.3 Day 1 Polynomial Long Division

Remember learning to divide with long division in the 3rd grade? Well, you’re going to use the same basic steps to divide polynomials now!

3.3 Day 2 Synthetic Division

This is my favorite method for dividing polynomials! It's quick, easy, and can be used for several applications. Unfortunately, it can only be used with one kind of divisor so pay attention to that!
