    If a polynomial f(x) is divided by (x-a) then (x-a) is a factor of f(x) if f(a)=0

    so as per factor therom you get x+1.

    Nope... not x+1

    I don't see how the factor theorem can help with this question (x^2 + 7x – 44) though?

    Did u get for 2x^2 + 16x – 18

    I got it but i'm not sure exactly how you worked it out i tried and got stuck

    f(x)=2x^2+16x-18 Now, U need to try for every options for which u will get f(a)=0 when it is divided by (x-a)

    In this case, When f(x) is divided by (x+9), f(-9)=2*(-9)^2+16*(-9)-18=0

    So, one of the factor of f(x) is (x+9)
