Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea i got that far phew but how do i solve for the A B and C after that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you'll need to put 3 different values of x say x=1,1,2 then you get 3 equations in A,B, C with 3 unknowns...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(Ax^3(x+3)+Bx^2(x+3)+Cx^3(x+3)+(x+3)+4x^4\\ =9x^4+17x^3+3x^28x+3\) put x = 1, to get 1 equation in A,B, C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1another method is comparing the coefficients to get 3 equations... yes, typo...it should be Cx(x+3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1like coefficient of x^4 will be A+4 and no right side, its 9 so, A+4= 9 gives A=5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think you should proceed with comparing the coefficients..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if you plug in x = 1 you get 4A + 4B+ 4C = 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think comapring the coefficients will give you answer much faster, if you have understood it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1coefficient of x^3 = 3A+B = 15+B on left on right its 17 so, 15+B = 17 gives B=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1forget about substitution...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so what you are saying is that for A you A + 4 = 9 then for B would you B + 3 =17 then for C would you C + 2 =3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then i also guess i dont get how you got the A + 4 either because my logic was wrong
