Long Division and Synthetic Divsion

Today we talked about the uses of Long Division and Synthetic Division and the process for each. Remember that we use these methods to find the roots of any polynomial beyond a quadratic! We will carry this process into our discussin of complex (imaginary) numbers at the end of the week.

Coming up:
- Homework is from section 2.3

Posting for Points:
How many roots do you expect to find from a quartic equation?
