Create a quadratic polynomial function f(x) and a linear binomial in the form (x − a).
Part 1. Show all work using long division to divide your polynomial by the binomial.
Part 2. Show all work to evaluate f(a) using the function you created.
Part 3. Use complete sentences to explain how the remainder theorem is used to determine whether your linear binomial is a factor of your polynomial function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Polynomial long division works just like it does with numbers. See the link: http://www.purplemath.com/modules/polydiv2.htm dw:1433007083246:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To start, divide 2x² by x to get 2x. Then multiply 2x by (x9) and subtract dw:1433007178287:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And the remainder was 206. So 2x + 22 + 206/(x9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And then to find f(9) just plug in 9 for x into your function and you should get 206 again.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's basically that if the remainder is 0 when you divide, then the linear binomial is a factor of your polynomial

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right, so (x  9) is not a factor of 2x²+4x+8
