From Edward: Hi there,
please, explain me synthetic division of polynomial functions.
for examp.: 3x3 + 2x2 +4 divide by x-2 (number after variable x is the powre of x )
Thank you. Edward. Answered by Melanie Tyrer.
From Dhruv Bansal: Hi, I'm a ninth grade student doing a math project for school. I'm trying to learn about various ways of solving 3rd and 4th degree polynomial equations using the remainder theorem, the factor theorem, and synthetic division. The books I have all mention x - r, which I know nothing about, not even how to get it.
I would really appreciate any information on this. Thanks.
