 Question 6607: I am having a hard time with Variation, Progression, and Theorems. My question is What is the quotient of b^3+4b^2-3b+126 ------------------ =? b+7 I have tried to do this question on my own and I am not having any luck, Can someone help me?Answer by longjonsilver(2297)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! So, use long division..i shall try to write this down here: b+7 | First... how many times does b go into ? Answer is times. So write over the cube term. Now, multiply the by both b and 7 and write those answers under, as: b+7 | ____ Now subtract from , to give: b+7 | ____ ____________________________ _____ Now repeat the process..how many times does b go into ? answer is -3b times...put this on top, then multiply that by both b and 7 and put the answer under. Subtract to leave 18b+126. Now repeat the process..how many times does b go into 18b? answer is 18 times...put this on top, then multiply that by both b and 7 and put the answer under. Subtract to leave 0. This means that b+7 divides into exactly, times. jon.
