Ex 2.4, 2 Use the Factor Theorem to determine whether g(x) is a factor of p(x) in the following cases: (i) p(x) = 2x3 + x2 – 2x – 1 , g(x) = x + 1 Finding remainder when 2x3 + x2 – 2x – 1 is divided by x + 1 Step 1: Put Divisor = 0 x + 1 = 0 x = –1 Step 2: p(x) = 2x3 + x2 – 2x – 1 Putting x = –1 p(–1) = 2(−1)3 + (−1)2 – 2(−1) – 1 = 2(–1) + 1 + 2 – 1 = –2 + 1 + 2 – 1 = 0 Thus, Remainder = p(–1) = 0 Since remainder is zero, x + 1 is a factor of 2x3 + x2 – 2x – 1
