Dividing Polynomials Calculator helps to divide two polynomials. We may use any polynomials such as monomials, binomials, trinomials etc. Hence it can be used for multiplying polynomials with monomials or binomials or trinomials etc. It is sometimes known as polynomial division calculator that divides the polynomial hence called divide polynomials calculator. It is the tool that even acts as a dividing polynomials by monomials calculator. You just have to enter the numerator and denominator polynomial and get its answer instantly.

You can see a default Polynomial given below. Click on "Divide", it will divide each term of the given dividend by its divisor and simplify.
 

Steps for Dividing Polynomials

Step 1 :  

First, separate the dividend and divisor. Divide each term of the dividend by its divisor.



Step 2 :  

Now add those answers together, and simplify it further.



Example Problems on Dividing Polynomials

  1. Divide: $\frac{x^{2} + 3x + 5}{x + 1}$


    Step 1 :  

    Need to divide $\frac{x^{2} + 3x + 5}{x + 1}$


    Dividing Polynomials



    Step 2 :  

    x2 + 3x + 5 = (2 + x)*(1 + x) + 3


    Which is in the form of Dividend = (Quotient)(Divisor) +Remainder.

    So,  Quotient = (2 + x)


    Remainder = 3



    Answer  :  

    Quotient = (2 + x)

    Remainder = 3



  2. Divide $\frac{x^4+3x^2-6}{x^2+x}$


    Step 1 :  

    Need to divide $\frac{x^4+3x^2-6}{x^2+x}$ 


    Dividing Polynomial



    Step 2 :  

    x2 + 3x2 - 6 = (x2 - x + 4)*(x2 + x) + (-4x - 6)


    Which is in the form of Dividend = (Quotient)(Divisor) +Remainder.

    So,  Quotient = (x2 - x + 4)


    Remainder = -4x - 6



    Answer  :  

    Quotient = (x2 - x + 4)

    Remainder = -4x - 6
