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!
