Translational equilibrium: The sum of all forces acting on the object must be zero

The net external torque must be zero: = 0


Rotational equilibrium: The sum of all torques on the object must be zero

Long Division
Division algorithm
If f(x) and d(x) 0 are polynomials, and the degree of d(x) is less than or equal to degree of f(x), then there exist unique polynomials q(x) and r(x), so that

f ( x) r ( x) = q( x) + , d ( x) d ( x)
The degree of r(x) is less than the degree of d(x). In special case where r(x)=0, d(x) divides evenly into f(x).

Example 1
Solve

3x 3 2 x 2 + 4 x 3 x 2 + 3x + 3

Set up the long division

x 2 + 3x + 3 3x 3 2 x 2 + 4 x 3
First divide the leading term 3x3 of the numerator polynomial by the leading term x2 of the divisor, and write the answer 3x on the top line:

3x x 2 + 3x + 3 3x 3 2 x 2 + 4 x 3

(cont)

Now multiply this term 3x by the divisor x2+3x+3, and write the answer

3x x + 3x + 3 = 3x + 9 x + 9 x

Under the numerator polynomial, lining up terms of equal degree and subtract the last line from the line above it.

Example 1

(cont)

Repeat the procedure: Divide the leading term -11x2 of the polynomial on the last line by the leading term x2 of the divisor to obtain -11, and add this term to the 3x on the top line:

3x 11 x2 + 3x + 3 3x3 2x2 + 4x 3
3x3 + 9x2 + 9x 11x2 5x 3
Then multiply back: -11(x2+3x+3)= -11x2-33x-33 and write the answer under the last line polynomial, lining up terms of equal degree.
