## anonymous 4 years ago Let f(x) = 4x3 + 7x2 – 13x – 3 and g(x) = x + 3. Find f(x)/g(x)

1. anonymous

are the numbers beside the variable x on the left side exponents :O

2. anonymous

yes:)

3. anonymous

are you given the answers cuz whatever i do may be wrong

4. anonymous

no, thts the hard part:/

5. anonymous

just saying :P

6. anonymous

so do u think you could help me?:)

f(x) / g(x) 4x^3 + 7x^2 - 13x - 3 (x -3) --------------------- ----- x + 3 (x -3) 4 x ^4 - 12 x^3 + 7 x^ 3 - 21 x^ 2 - 13 x^ 2 + 39x - 3x + 9 ------------------------------------------------------ x^2 - 9 4x^4 - 5x^3 - 34x^2 + 36x + 9 ------------------------------ (x - 3)(x +3)

8. anonymous

that doesnt look right at all what do you think?

9. anonymous

$4 x^2-5 x+2+\frac{-9}{x+3}$
