Let and
By using the information in the question and the factor theorem, and
1)
2)
Two equations, two unknowns: simplify then solve for p and q.
The expressions px^4-5x+q and x^4-2x^3-px^2-8 have a common factor x-2. Find the values of p and q.
What would be the best way to answer this question? Do I use simultaneous equations?
I'm just really stuck on this one.
Thanks in advance everyone.
