I'v been stuck on this question and I dont know how to solve it. I have to use the remainder theorem to find the answer for (4x³ - 5x² + 3x - 14) / (x² + 2x - 1).
Since I can't expand (x² + 2x - 1) so I cannot find any values for "x". Can somebody please help I have to hand this in after tomorrow.
Given polynomials a and b, if the remainder of a/b is r, then a = b*q + r, where q and r are polynomials and the degree of r is 0 <= r < b.
Here a = 4x^3-5x^2+3x-14, b = x^2+2x-1, q = 4x + 13, and r = 33x - 27.
Look at my first post.
Look at how I did long division, and understand it.
The number on the bottom which is left you cannot divide futher.
That number is the "remainder".
The number after the equal sign is the "quotient".
Now you have the quotient and remainder after division.
