The two forms in which the result of this division can be written are
$\frac{P\left(x\right)}{D\left(x\right)}=Q\left(x\right)+\frac{R\left(x\right)}{D\left(x\right)}$
and
$P\left(x\right)=D\left(x\right)Q\left(x\right)+R\left(x\right)$
Result:
$\frac{P\left(x\right)}{D\left(x\right)}=Q\left(x\right)+\frac{R\left(x\right)}{D\left(x\right)}$
$P\left(x\right)=D\left(x\right)Q\left(x\right)+R\left(x\right)$
