 Question from Emily, a student: Simplify $(9x^2-41x-6)/(x-4)$ using long division

Hi Emily,

In the response to an earlier question by Megan, Stephen and I gave a step by step construction for dividing $-4 x^3 - 12 x^2 + 5x + 5$ by $x - 3.$

Use the same procedure on your problem and write back if you need more assistance.
