Were you thinking maybe the second degree polynomial in the divisor would be a problem? The method works for any case where you would use long division.Dan MacKinnonhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13603404133431327842noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5008879105295771159.post-30927271489704111952017-10-08T02:26:46.430-07:002017-10-08T02:26:46.430-07:00this has a problem i think if you try ad do soemth...this has a problem i think if you try ad do soemthing like this<br /><br />(x^3 - x^2 -x + 1) / (x^2 -1)Andrew Taconhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04797185212998126317noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5008879105295771159.post-48397198004786524002012-05-24T08:47:26.860-07:002012-05-24T08:47:26.860-07:00This method is more popularly known as the "g...This method is more popularly known as the "generic rectangle" method - so if you google using this term you'll come up with more examples.Dan MacKinnonhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13603404133431327842noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5008879105295771159.post-38920592885438319372012-05-23T04:26:28.361-07:002012-05-23T04:26:28.361-07:00That's great - thanks!

Because the syllabus doesn't bother with remainders I simply used a visual inspection method with no grids and compensating for the different coefficients.Jackhttp://fourninezero.blogspot.com/noreply@blogger.com
