    if you have seen the link, it is the same with this question. let \(f(x)=x^{100}\) since \(x^2-3x+2=(x-1)(x-2)\), we first use the RT for \(f(1)=1\) so, \(f(x)=(x-1)Q(x) +1\) you follow so far?

    let \(f(x) =x^{100}\) we want to find the remainder after dividing f(x) by \(x^2−3x+2\). using the remainder theorem, \(f(x^2−3x+2)=(x^2−3x+2)Q(x)+R\), right?

    no, it's wrong. lol sorry about that \(f(x)=(x^2−3x+2)Q(x)+R\) so, \(f(x)=(x-1)(x-2)Q(x)+R\) now, notice that, if we sub x=1, the whole terms vanishes and we get f(1)=1,right?

    and, by the remainder theorem, since f(1)=1, there must be a P(x) where \(f(x)=(x-1)P(x)+1\)

    notice that: \(f(x)=(x−1)P(x)+1\) and \(f(x)=(x−1)(x−2)Q(x)+R\) looks very similar. So, all we have to do is find a way to relate P(x) and Q(x). now, how do we do that? we let x=2 for the first eq. \(f(2)=(2−1)P(2)+1=2^{100}\) \(P(2)=2^{100}-1\) right?

    now, since \(P(2)=2^{100 }-1\), by the remainder theorem again, there must exist a D(x) such that \(P(x)=(x-2)D(x)+2^{100 }-1\) !!! now, we substitute this into \(f(x)=(x−1)P(x)+1\), getting \(f(x)=(x−1)[(x-2)D(x)+2^{100 }-1]+1\) simplifying and rearranging, \(f(x)=(x−1)(x-2)D(x)+(x-1)(2^{100 }-1)+1\)

    @sirm3d can you see where i went wrong here? i originally used x=2 first but x=1 should work too. @mayankdevnani start with x=2 and you'll get b. meanwhile sorry, lol x=1 didn't work out.

    i see nothing wrong here. \[ (x-1)(2^{100}-1)+1=2^{100}(x-1)-(x-1)+1=2^{100}(x-1)-(x-2)\]
