comment MathJax basic tutorial and quick reference
@Maria Mazur For the same example $ \dfrac{x^3-6x^2+11x-6}{x-1}=x^2-5x+6$: $$\begin{array}{rrrr|ll} x^3 & -6x^2 & +11x & -6 & x - 1 \\ -x^3 & +x^2 & & & x^2-5x+6 \\ \hline & -5x^2 & +11x & -6\\ & \phantom{-}5x^2 & -5x & & & & \\ \hline & & +6x & -6 \\ & & -6x & +6 \\ \hline & & 0 & 0 \end{array}$$ I've used this code \begin{array}{rrrr|ll} x^3 & -6x^2 & +11x & -6 & x - 1 \\ -x^3 & +x^2 & & & x^2-5x+6 \\ \hline & -5x^2 & +11x & -6\\ & \phantom{-}5x^2 & -5x & & & & \\ \hline & & +6x & -6 \\ & & -6x & +6 \\ \hline & & 0 & 0 \end{array}

@epimorphic Let's see if OP has any reaction. One of the things that occurs here is that both questions, the specific one and the more general one are closed and the latter is not listed in the List of Generalizations of Common Questions.

@epimorphic There is also this opinion: "One of the reasons we get the same question over and over is people who are learning new concepts cannot tell if two problems are essentially the same.", which I agree with.
