# Find the remainder when f of x is divided by x - k and ƒ of x equals 2x3 plus 3x2 plus 4x plus 18 and k equals -2?

Find the remainder when f(x) is divided by (x - k)

ƒ(x) = 2x3 + 3x2 + 4x + 18; k = -2

(x - k)

= (x - (-2))

= (x + 2)

x + 2 = 0

x = -2

By Remainder Theorem

ƒ(x) = 2x3 + 3x2 + 4x + 18

ƒ(-2) = 2(-2)3 + 3(-2)2 +4(-2) + 18

= 2(-8) + 3(4) + 4(-2) +18

= -16 + 12 -8 +18

= 6

Thus, the remainder is 6

### What number has a remainder of 1 when divided by 6 and a remainder of 2 when divided by 8?

No number can satisfy these conditions: To have a remainder of 1 when divided by 6, the number must be odd (as all multiples of 6 are even and an even number plus 1 is odd) To have a remainder of 2 when divided by 8, the number must be even (as all multiples of 8 are even and an even number plus 2 is even) No number is both odd and even. → No…

### Using the remainder theorum determine the remainder when xcubed PLUS 3xsquared - x - 2 is divided by x PLUS 3 TIMES x PLUS 5 theres brackets around x PLUS 3 and seperatly around x PLUS 5?

(x^3 + 3x^2 - x - 2)/[(x + 3)(x + 5) in this case you can use the long division to divide polynomials and to find the remainder of this division. But you cannot use neither the synthetic division to divide polynomials nor the Remainder theorem to determine the remainder. You can use both the synthetic division and the Remainder theorem only if the divisor is in the form x - c. In this case…
