Textbook Problem

For Problems 1-10, perform the indicated divisions of polynomials by monomials. (Objective 1) 14 x y − 16 x 2 y 2 − 20 x 3 y 4 − x y

To determine

To Find:

The value of the polynomials by performing the indicated division by monomials.

Explanation

A polynomial is an expression of one or more algebraic terms each of which consists of a constant multiplied by one or more variables raised to a non-negative integral power.

Here the given polynomial is a trinomial.

To divide a polynomial by monomial, divide each term of the polynomial by the monomial.

Divide the trinomial by the monomial âˆ’xy.

Simplify the terms which are under division.

Calculation:

Consider the polynomial 14xyâˆ’16x2y2âˆ’20x3y4âˆ’xy.

Divide each term of the polynomial by the monomial âˆ’xy.

14xyâˆ’16x2y2âˆ’20x3y4âˆ’xy=14xyâˆ’xy+âˆ’16x2<
