bro can you tell me how did you write t^8/t+1 to t^7-t^6+t^5................ . i do by other methods( by doing +1-1 again and again) which are very long, can you tell me this ""long division method"". thank you

$$\text{Doing }+1-1 \text{ is actually much better here } \\ \dfrac{t^8}{t+1} = \dfrac{t^8-1}{t+1}+\dfrac{1}{t+1} \quad \quad ,t^8-1=(t+1)(t-1)(t^2+1)(t^4+1) \\ \dfrac{t^8}{t+1} = (t-1)(t^6+t^4+t^2+1)+\dfrac{1}{t+1}$$
