I need help, when (3x^3 + px^2 + qx +8) is divided by (x^2  3x +2) , the remainder is (5x+6). how do we find the values of p and q? thank you :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the divisor x^2 3x +2 is factorised to (x2)(x1) so you can find P(2) and P(1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we have from what I did the following equations: 3p+q=16 ; 2p10=6 2p=16 p=8 now just plug this into our other equation to find q 3(8)+q=16 24+q=16
