Explains and shows examples of how to Divide a Polynomial by a Monomial

• How do you divide a polynomial by a monomial?
• What is (3x^3 + 12x^2 - 9x)/3x?
• When can you break up a polynomial over a monomial?
• What if a polynomial does not divide evenly into a monomial?
• How do you simplify (12x^3y^2 - 15xy^4 + 20x^2)/4x^2y?
• How do you divide (9x^4 - 15x^3)/-3x^2 and simplify it using the rules of exponents?
• How can you divide variables with exponents if you forget the rules?
This lesson shows a bunch of examples of how to divide a polynomial by a monomial by simply breaking up each of the terms of the polynomial and putting them over the denominator. The steps are very clear and well taught.
