Divide a Polynomial by a Monomial

In this video, learn how to divide a polynomial by a monomial.

In this video, we are going to look at how to divide a polynomial by a monomial.
For example:
To solve:
(12x^3+8x^2+16x) \div 4x
we will divide each term in the numerator separately by the denominator of 4x.
So:
12x^3 \div 4x=3x^2
8x^2 \div 4x=2x
16x \div 4x=4
Therefore, the final answer is:
3x^2+2x+4
