Can you please help me with this maths question
1. Let P(x) = (x+1)(x3)Q(x)+a(x+1)+b , where Q(x) is a polynomial and a and b are real numbers
When P(x) is divided by (x+1) the remainder is 11.
When P(x) is divided by (x3) the remainder is 1.
(i) What is the value of b?
(ii) What is the remainder when P(x) is divided by (x+1)(x3) ?
