# Find the Remainder (2x^2-18x+5)÷(x-3)

To calculate the remainder, first divide the polynomials.
Set up the polynomials to be divided. If there is not a term for every exponent, insert one with a value of .
 – – +
Divide the highest order term in the dividend by the highest order term in divisor .
 – – +
Multiply the new quotient term by the divisor.
 – – + + –
The expression needs to be subtracted from the dividend, so change all the signs in
 – – + – +
After changing the signs, add the last dividend from the multiplied polynomial to find the new dividend.
 – – + – + –
Pull the next terms from the original dividend down into the current dividend.
 – – + – + – +
Divide the highest order term in the dividend by the highest order term in divisor .
 – – – + – + – +
Multiply the new quotient term by the divisor.
 – – – + – + – + – +
The expression needs to be subtracted from the dividend, so change all the signs in
 – – – + – + – + + –
After changing the signs, add the last dividend from the multiplied polynomial to find the new dividend.
 – – – + – + – + + – –
The final answer is the quotient plus the remainder over the divisor.
Since the last term in the resulting expression is a fraction, the numerator of the fraction is the remainder.
