    polynomials

    I have one more problem...
    I want to find all rings Zn, such the polynomial x+2 divides polynomial (x^5)-10x+12.
    Could anybody help me?
    Thanks, this is a new topic for me...

    x^5 - 10x + 12 is divisible by x+2 in any (unitary) ring because (-2)^5 -10 \times (-2) + 12 = \text{what} ?

    of course, -2 is root of that polynomial...I know. I think it should work, that it is divisible in any ring, but I canīt find the reason...
    Zn isnīt a subring of Z, or am I wrong??

    can you give me one more hint please? I am really trying to find out why it is so in any ring, but Iīm afraid Iīm not able to do it now. I have passed an exam (not algebra) few hours ago, Iīm exhausted, but I really want to do my homework...
