hi, the question is:

find (i) the quotient and (ii) the remainder when the polynomial is divided by (x - 2). compare your answer to (ii) with the value of P(2) and state your conclusion.

a)

i did the first two bits in finding the quotient and remainder but i'm confused what you do when the the value of is used? do you just make the polynomial then what would you do after that? do you need to make the value of x in the divsor 2 as well?

i take it the answer is just going to end up as -3

thankyou, Mark
