Algebraic long division can be useful in factorising polynomials.
In the first video tutorial you are introduced to a numeric example to get you used to the method and then I do the same again on an algebraic one so that you can hopefully see the similarity and grasp the concept with ease. You are prompted to try to complete some of my examples and then try one yourself.
Handling Missing Terms
Sometimes several terms can be missing in the polynomial. In this video I show you how to handle these types.
