Arrange terms in both in decreasing order based on the exponents.

Use the algorith for long division. This is just like long division.

Step 1. Divide 1st term into 1st term, (place answer above division line).

Step 2. Multiply that answer by all terms in the divisor, (place this result below the polynomial inside the division bar)

Step 3. Subtract like terms (answer goes down 1 line) and bring down another term to continue.

Repeat: Step 1. Divide 1st term into new 1st term. etc

What is polynomial division?

That means that you divide one polynomial by another polynomial. Basically, if you have polynomials "A" and "B", you look for a polynomial "C" and a remainder "R", such that: B x C + R = A ... such that the remainder has a lower degree than polynomial "B", the polynomial by which you are dividing. For example, if you divide by a polynomial of degree 3, the remainder must be of degree 2 or less.
