# 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:
$12x^3 \div 4x=3x^2$
$8x^2 \div 4x=2x$
$16x \div 4x=4$
$3x^2+2x+4$
