In this video, learn how to divide a polynomial by a monomial. After you finish this lesson, view all of our Algebra 1 lessons and practice problems.

In this video, we are going to look at how to divide a polynomial by a monomial.

For example:

To solve:

we will divide each term in the numerator separately by the denominator of 4x.

So:

Therefore, the final answer is:

In this short video, we’re going to review dividing a polynomial by a monomial.

For example:

We have a polynomial divided by .

The very important point n dividing a polynomial by a monomial is you should divide each term of the numerator by the denominator.

Let’s go through this

To recap, in dividing a polynomial by a monomial, we have to divide each term on the numerator by the denominator.

Each term must be able to be divided by the denominator in order to do so.
