The expression that should be subtracted from the polynomial f(x) = x4 + 2x3-13x2 – 12x + 21 so that the resulting polynomial is exactly divisible by g(x) = x2 – 4x + 3 is
Given: Dividend =

Since we know that :
Since the remainder is 2x-3
So, 2x-3 must be subtracted from
so that the resulting polynomial is exactly divisible by x2 - 4x + 3
If (x + 1) is a factor of x2 – 3ax + 3a – 7, then the value of a is
Since (X+1) is a factor of x2 - 3ax + 3a - 7
Therefore , x+1=0
Putting the value of x in the the p(x) = x2 - 3ax + 3a - 7
or, (-1)2 -3(a)(-1)+3a-7=0
Therefore the value of a=1.

The three zeroes of the polynomial 2x3 + 5x2 – 28x – 15 _____
Since the solution is not a complex number, it is a real number. Since rational numbers include all integers, natural numbers and fractions , So the numbers are rational numbers.

If (x + 1) is a factor of 2x3 + ax2 + 2bx + 1, then find the values of a and b given that 2a – 3b = 4.
Given is the value of a and b.
given that (x+1) is a factor of p(x)
therefore, -1 is a zero of given p(x)
p(x) = 2x3 +ax2 +2bx +1
substituting the value of -1 in the given p(x), we get
p(x)=2*(-1)3 +a *(-1)2 +2*b*(-1)+ 1
= -2 + a -2b + 1
= -1 + a - 2b
or,a - 2b = 1
also given that 2a - 3b = 4
so we got two equations;
a - 2b = 7 ...(1)
2a - 3b = 4 ...(2)
(1)* (2)* (4)- 2 = 2a - 4b = (3)
(2)* 1 = 2a - 3b = 4 (4)
(4) - (3) = [2a - 2a ] + [-3b - (-4b)] = 4 - 2
-3b + 4b = 2
therefore b = 2
substituting the value of bin (3)
2a - 4b = 2
2a - (4*2) = 2
2a - 8 = 2
2a = 2 + 8
2 = 10
a = 10 / 2
therefore a = 5
so we get the value of a and b
that is ; a = 5 and b = 2

When the polynomial f(x) = 4x3 + 8x2 + 8x + 7 is divided by the polynomial g(x) = 2x2 – x + 1, the quotient and the remainder are
When x2 – 2x + k divides the polynomial x4 – 6x3 + 16x2 – 25x + 10, the remainder is (x + a). The value of a is _________
Given that the remainder is (x + a)
⇒ (4k – 25 + 16 – 2k)x + [10 – k(8 – k) ] = x + a
⇒ (2k – 9)x + [10 – 8k + k2 ] = x + a
On comparing both the sides, we get
2k – 9 = 1
⇒ 2k = 10
∴ k = 5
Also 10 – 8k + k2 = a
⇒ 10 – 8(5) + 52 = a
⇒ 10 – 40 + 25 = a
∴ a = – 5
If the degree of the divisor g(x) is one then the degree of the remainder r(x) is
Degree of remainder is one less than the degree of the divisor because if the remainder is of the same degree then it can be divided further , its just like when the divisor is a number the remainder is less than the number because if it is more than or equal to that number it can further be divided. So, the degree is zero.
If the polynomial (2x + 3) is a factor of the polynomial 2x3 + 9x2 – x – b. The value of b is_______

If two of the zeros of the polynomial x4 – 17x3 + 90x2 – 166x + 92 are (7 + √3) and (7 – √3), then the other two zeros are _________
If f(x) is divided by g(x), g(x) ≠ 0, then there exist two polynomials q(x) and r(x) such that
Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder.
When we divide f(x) by g(x) then q(x) is quotient and r(x) is remainder.
Therefore, f(x) = g(x) × q(x) + r(x).
