Expert Answer:

If p(x) and g(x) are any two polynomial with g(x)  not equal to 0,then we can find polynomials q(x) and r(x) such t

hat     p(x)=g(x).q(x) +r(x) where r(x) is0 or degree of r(x) degree of g(x)

For example divide 3 x²- x³- 3x +5 by  x-1-x²

note that the given polynomial is not in standard form. To carry out the division first write both dividend and divisor in degreesing order of their degrees.

-x²
