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
