When we divide polynomials, there are two different scenarios. The first and easier of the two involves dividing a polynomial by a monomial. For this type of problem, we setup a fraction and divide each term of the polynomial by the monomial. The second and harder scenario involves dividing polynomials when neither is a monomial. For this type of problem, we generally use polynomial long division.
