Long Division

  1. Jan 19, 2007 #1
    (x^3 +1)/(x^2 +3) = ?


    _X______
    X^2 + 3 / X^3 +1
    - X^3 +3X
    -----------
    -3X +1
    From here. I cannot figure out what to do.

    Second hint: the remainder, -3x+ 1 has lower degree than the divisor.

    8/3= 2 with remainder 2 or 2+ 2/3, because the remainder, 2, is less than the divisor, 3.
