Q:
# Use the Remainder Theorem to determine which of the following is a factor of p(x) = x 3 - 2x 2 - 5x + 6.a) x + 1b) x - 2 c) x - 3 d) x + 3

Accepted Solution

A:

if x + 1 is a factor then f(-1) will = zero.

f(-1) = 8 so its not answer a).

f(3) = 0 so the answer is x - 3

Its c.

f(-1) = 8 so its not answer a).

f(3) = 0 so the answer is x - 3

Its c.
