Arrange the terms of the divisor and dividend in descending order of their degrees.The first term of the quotient is obtained from dividing the first term of dividend by divisor.Multiply the quotient by all the terms of the divisor.Subtract the obtained result from the dividend. Repeat the process till we get zero as a remainder or a polynomial with degree less that the divisor.

The following examples helps to understand the steps involved in dividing monomials.

Arrange the terms of the divisor and dividend in descending order of their degrees.

So we get 2x^2+5x+2

Now divide as we do in long division numerical method.

by arranging we get x^3 – 6x^2 + 9x -2
