What is the purpose of polynomial long division and synthetic division?

**Follow the steps to complete your notes and review the content.**

**STEP 1: Preparation**

__Title__your spiral with the heading above,

__copy__the essential question(s), and draw your border line for the Cornell notes.

**STEP 2: Textbook**
