...order to conform to the general method of proceeding from the left toward the right, it is customary to **divide the first term of the dividend by the first term of** thi. riivisor ; this, however, affects no principle, as the division may be com menced at the right... | |

...dividend and divisor, thus arranged, being placed as dividend and divisor, are placed in arithmetic, **divide the first term of the dividend by the first term of the divisor** ; the result is the first term of the quotient. 3. Then, as in arithmetic, multiply the whole divinar... | |

...dividend and the divisor are arranged according to the powers of any letter, the result of the division of **the first term of the dividend by the first term of the divisor** is the first term of the quotient. Let, for example, A = a3 -\- 2aa63 -f- ¿3 be the dividend, a3 and... | |
