    How are you supposed to find the values of d and e?

    Thanks,

    You pretty much follow through with what you've already done, but for  x and  x^0 (the constants) and compare the coefficients

    Unless the question specifically asks for the Comparing Coefficients method, do it like this because it just ends up being much easier and quicker

    Oh okay, thank you so much! 😊
    I thought the question wanted me to use the Comparing Coefficients method because of how it was set out, but luckily I am much more confident using the long division method!
