Im fairly sure ive never been taught this and i have a few assignment questions to complete and im struggling to get my head around it.
The first one is 4x^2 - 3x - 2 divided by 1 - X
Can anyone give me some tips? hopefully from this first i'll manage the rest
Obviously the problem you have give relates to quadratic function which can have two distinct real roots and multiplying them gives: (x-a)(x-b)=ax^2+bx+c (identity).
So if you you have been given one of the factors suppose (x-a) is already given:
=> (x-b)=ax^2/x-b+bx/x-b+c/x-b (where common denominator (x-b) ).
So its comparabale to arithematic. Compare above identity to below equation:
So thats the idea.
Hope i helped.
