• ﻿Here, I can help!
• ﻿I just don't understand synthetic division
• ﻿So lets say the equation is x(4)+3x(3)-5x(2)+x-16 / x-1
• ﻿That already sounds so complicated!
• Its actually pretty easy! first you have to figure out what you are dividing by, by setting x-1 = 0. Then by solving that you know x=1, so you're dividing by 1.﻿
• ﻿Then we have to set up the rest of the problem
• Okay, that's a start.
• ﻿Next thing we have to do it take the first number from each term in the equation and line it up next to our 1.1 l 1 3 -5 1 -16Then we move our first digit down and start multiplying and adding
• That makes a little more sense!
• So it's like this...1 l 1 3 -5 1 -16 1 1 4 -1 0 1 4 -1 0 -16For this problem there is a remainder, therefore x-1 isn't a factor of the equation
• I see! And if the remainder was 0, then x-1 is a factor
• Exactly! Great job!!
• I finally understand! Thank you so much!
