**Step 1**: Go to Cuemath's online polynomial division calculator.**Step 2:**Enter the two polynomials in the given input boxes.**Step 3**: Click on the "**Divide**" button to divide the two polynomials.**Step 4**: Click on the "**Reset**" button to clear the fields and enter new polynomials.

## How Does Polynomial Division Calculator Work?

A polynomial is defined as an algebraic expression that consists of variables, constants, coefficients, non-negative exponentiated variables, and includes addition, subtraction, as well as multiplication. There are different methods available to divide polynomials. These are the long division, synthetic division, splitting the terms, and factorization methods. The most commonly used method in dividing polynomials is the long division technique. When there are no common factors between the numerator and the denominator, the long division method can be used to simplify the expression.

**Step 1:**Arrange all the terms in the descending order of their degrees.**Step 2:**The first term of the dividend is divided by the divisor. The result obtained is written as the first term of the quotient.**Step 3:**Now this result is multiplied by the divisor. The product obtained is written below the dividend.**Step 4:**Subtract the product from the dividend to get a new polynomial.**Step 5:**Repeat steps 2 to 4 with the new polynomials generated till there are no more terms left and the remainder is 0. This implies that polynomial 1 is completely divisible by polynomial 2.

## Solved examples on Polynomial Division

**Example 1:** Divide 4x^{2 }- 5x - 21 by x - 3 and verify it using the polynomial division calculator.

**Solution:**

The Quotient is 4x + 7 and the remainder is 0.

**Example 2:** Divide (x^{4} + 2 x^{2 }+ 17 x - 48) by (x + 3) and verify it using the polynomial division calculator.

**Solution:**

The Quotient is x^{3} - 3 x^{2 }+ 11 x - 16 and the remainder is 0.

Similarly, you can use the polynomial division calculator to divide the given polynomials

- 9x
^{4}+ 7x and 2x - 3x
^{3}- 2x - 1 and x - 1
