I have the fraction:
We have been asked to express in mixed number form using i) long division and ii) using the remainder theorem.
Have done the long division bit and got a remainder of -6.
I am not sure how to use the remainder theorem with the x^2 + 1 as if you use f(-1) you get the remainder 0. How do i go about using the remainder theorem with a squared x?
Thanks! I remember doing things like that before. But usually you have to work with y when you've finished.
Do i have to do anything to y when i'm done? Otherwise they might has well just asked me work out the quadratic divided by x + 1.
Does that make any sense?
