Part A: Divide $$\ (8x^4y^3 + 4x^3y^2 - 2x^2y - 12x^2y^4)\ by -2x^2y$$. Show your work, and justify each step. (6 points) How would your answer be affected if the x^2 variable in the denominator was just an x? What is the degree and classification of the polynomial you got?

Can't you just factor out -2x^2y out from the numerator and then cancel it you with the denominator. and you will be left with the quotient.

Umm... I'm not really sure cx

alternatively you can divide term by term

if you look at all four terms within the paranthesis, you should see that you can factor $2x ^{2}y$ for each term
