 Question 31083: Please, I need help with this problem: Assume that (X-2) is a factor of the polynomial f(x)=x^3+a(x^2)+bx+2 and that f(x) gives a remainder of -3 when it is divided by x+1. Then, a=?, b=?. What I did is I used the factor they gave me and used the 2 as a root. It gave me 4a+2b=-10 and so I planned to use and solve a system of equations with what I could get from the other information they give me with the problem. I'm stuck though, cause I have no idea of what to do with the remainder data... Please help, and thanks so much! Click here to see answer by mukhopadhyay(490)
