Storyboard Text

  • I have a test tomorrow in synthetic division. Can you help??
  • Sure
  • So the first thing you would want to do is to take the coefficients of all the x's and put them in order. If one coefficient is missing, you put a 0. For example, If you have x^3+x+1, you would write that as 1 0 1 1. 
  • Next, put the number given on the left side, separated by a line. If you're give x-3, then you put 3. Then, put the first number down. Then, multiply the first number by the divisor (3 in this case)
  • Yes! Thank you so much!
  • Take the product of these numbers, and put them under the next one, then add. Continue doing that until you have a set of numbers. If you are left with 1 2 3, and your original polynomial was a power of 3, you'd write that as x^2 +2x+3. Do you get it?
  • This is so easy now..
  • I aced the test! Thank you for explaining.
  • So how was it??
