Express the function in the form f(x) = (x - k) q(x) + r(x) for the given value of k. Use a graphing utility to demonstrate that f(x) = r(x).
Check this equation.
Function: f(x) = 15x^4 + 10x^3 - 6x^2 + 14
Value of k: -2/3
Thanks in advance to anyone who answers.
use synthetic division ...
Code:
-2/3]..15.....10....-6......0.....14
.............-10.....0......4....-8/3
---------------------------------------
......15.....0.....-6......4....34/3
