In this lesson, we discuss the division of Polynomials by essentially reversing the tabular method. It’s a little tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, this is one of the most simple way to divide and factor terms out from a polynomial.
A common error is not having enough boxes so the diagonals are like terms. This often happens when a “place value” is missing. There are a few examples in the powerpoint slides for Unit 1.
