Suppose h(x) = (x - 1)(x + 3)f(x) + (ax + b) for some polynomial f(x) and two numbers a and b (the remainder must have the degree at most 1). We know that h(1) = -2 and h(-3) = 10. This gives two equations on a and b.
Got stuck with this polynomial question needing help !
The question is as follows :
When a polynomial h(x) is divided by (x-1) and (x+3) , the remainders are -2 and 10 respectively. Find the remainder when h(x) is divided by (x-1)(x+3)
Please help guys !
so vexed over this question !
