Homework Set 10
I just talked with the person in change of posting the homework sets, and he won’t be able to get this
set posted until Thursday. I have written out the problems for you so you can start on them and then enter
them once the set is posted.
1. Give the partial fraction decomposition of
4x2 − 35x + 34
.
x3 − 3x2 − 10x + 24
Note: x3 − 3x2 − 10x + 24 = (x − 2)(x + 3)(x − 4).

8. Let p be the quartic (degree 4) polynomial that satisfies p(i) = 2i , i = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. What is p(x)?
9. For the following linear systems, you will need to enter ”U” if the system has a unique soltuion, ”N”
if it has no solution, and ”I” if it has infinitely many solutions.
(a)

(c)
3x + 4y
= 1
6x + 8y
= 2

boxes of type IV measure 1 by 2 by 4 feet, are one year old, and cost \$2 each.
Suppose the sum of the lengths of your boxes is 20, the sum of their widths 28, the sum of their heights
46, the sum of their ages 32, and the total price of those boxes 34. How many of each type of boxes
do you have?
