Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have x=5, it means we are dividing by x5 to get the value of P(5) write the coefficients of P(x)= x^3+3x^26 coefficients are 1 3 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait ash, i messed up the problem was Use synthetic substitution to evaluate P(x) = x3 + 3x2  6 for x = 1. P(1) =

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we have _______________ 5  1 3 6 bring the first term 1 as it is down , _______________ 5  1 3 6 1 next multiply , the term brought down by 5 and ____________________________ 5  1 3 6 5(5*1) 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no we have to evaluate at x=5 so it's _______________ 5  1 3 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be 3 5 which is 15 so then would i divide 15 by 6 and get the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^3+3x^2(no x so you PUT ZERO) 6\]you were messing a term of zero instead of the x term.. coz you had

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0saljudieh07 i messed up tho and the question is Use synthetic substitution to evaluate P(x) = x3 + 3x2  6 for x = 1. P(1) = i accidently put 5. im going to try it again because i forgot the 0.
