Synthetic Division

Use synthetic division to find the quotient q(x) and remainder R when f(x) is divided by q(x).

[1] f(x) = 0.1x^2 - 0.2; g(x) = x + 2.1

[2] f(x) = x^5 + 1; g(x) = x + 1

I assume you meant "when f(x) is divided by g(x)". Consult your textbook for the method, which is very similar to normal long division.

[1] q(x) = 0.1 x - 0.21, R = 0.241

[2] q(x) = x^4 - x^3 +x^2 - x + 1, R = 0

Skipjack gave the answers to both. For how to perform synthetic division check out this link.
