1. Use synthetic substitution to evaluate f (x) = x3 + x2 – 3x – 10 when x = 2. 2 ANSWER –4 1 1 2 –3 6 -10 6 1 3 3 -4 Check HW 5.4 multiples of 3 EXAMPLE 1 Use polynomial long division Divide f (x) = 3x4 – 5x3 + 4x – 6 by x2 – 3x + 5. SOLUTION Write polynomial division in the same format you use when dividing numbers. Include a “0” as the coefficient of x2 in the dividend. At each stage, divide the term with the highest power in what is left of the dividend by the first term of the divisor. This gives the next term of the quotient. EXAMPLE 1 Use polynomial long division 3x2 + 4x – 3 x2 – 3x + 5 )3x4 – 5x3 + 0x2 + 4x – 6 quotient -(3x4 – 9x3 + 15x2) 4x3 – 15x2 + 4x -(4x3 – 12x2 + 20x) –3x2 – 16x – 6 -(–3x2 + 9x – 15) –25x + 9 ANSWER remainder 3x4 – 5x3 + 4x – 6 = 3x2 + 4x – 3 + –25x + 9 x2 – 3x + 5 x2 – 3x + 5 EXAMPLE 2 Use polynomial long division with a linear divisor Divide f(x) = x3 + 5x2 – 7x + 2 by x – 2. x2 + 7x + 7 x – 2 ) x3 + 5x2 – 7x + 2 quotient -(x3 – 2x2) 7x2 – 7x -(7x2 – 14x) 7x + 2 -(7x – 14) 16 ANSWER remainder x3 + 5x2 – 7x +2 = x2 + 7x + 7 + 16 x–2 x–2 GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 Divide using polynomial long division. 1.
