(2x^3+5x^2-4x-3) / (2X +1) = 2X^3 + 5X^2-4X-3 Remainder zero

The back of the book says the remainder is -2

I checked over my work a bunch of times, and used google cant find anything help would be much appreciated

The remainder theorem states that when a polynomial is divided by , then the remainder is equal to .

So here and you are dividing by , so the remainder will be equal to .

I agree with your answer of 0, so either you have copied down the wrong question, or the book has a typo.
