    A faster method for linear divisors than traditional long division, it has served me well through school and beyond.

    I love this method - I always use it when I can (thanks for posting). It is really unfortunate that it only works for single degree divisors, though.

    Procedures like this make me wonder who has the time to figure them out, although I appreciate their work!
