When dividing a polynomial by a monomial, we need to divide each term of the polynomial by the monomial. When we need to divide a polynomial by another polynomial, we can use a method called the long division. If there are missing terms in the dividend, include them with a coefficient of zero. Synthetic division is a shorter way to divide a polynomial by a binomial where the coefficient of the binomial divisor must be 1. If it isnt 1, the division problem must be rewritten so that it is 1. You'll learn how to do this in the lecture.
