# Find the Remainder (x^3-5x^2+2x-10)/(x-5)

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 term 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.
 + + – – + – – + + – – +
Since the remander is , the final answer is the quotient.
Since the final term in the resulting expression is not a fraction, the remainder is .
