Polynomial division

Hey all,
In regards to polynomial revision for methods 3/4, how neccesary do you think it is? I can find factors and stuff much faster using equating coefficients and stuff, so does it ever come up explicity on exams like "divide these two" or is it usually tech activie like an MC if it does come up?
"Don't give up, and don't put too much effort into things that don't matter"-Albert Einstein, probably.

Polynomials is probably one of those topics that you should be pretty solid with in most scenarios… whether that be VCE meth or beyond… that’s just my opinion anyways  ;)

It's hardly any question asking you to use the process of polynomial division in MM. Using equating coefficients should be fine. Concentrate on the process of finding the roots, it's much trickier. If it's in exam 2, just use Propfrac in CAS.
