Long division can be used to divide a polynomial by another polynomial, in this case a binomial of lower degree. When **dividing polynomials**, we set up the problem the same way as any long division problem, but are careful of terms with zero coefficients. For example, in the polynomial x^3 + 3x + 1, x^2 has a coefficient of zero and needs to be included as x^3+ 0x^2+3x+1in the division problem.
