    P(x)=Q(x)D(x)+R

    \[\frac{x-1+4}{x-1}\] \[\frac{x-2+5}{x-2}\] since f(x) = x+3 is "a" solution .... i wonder if we can be this specific

    i think we look more at the remainder theorem here.

    For this speicfic question P(x)=Q(x)(x-1)(x-2)+(Ax+B)

    The remainder is a linear factor as it is 1 degree lower than a quadratic

    Anyway we know P(1)=4 from first lot of info and P(2)=5

    So we get A+B=4 2A+B=5
