Is that f(x) = x^2 + x - 2 ---------- x + 1 Just making sure

the only thing about that problem that confuses me is the weird looking a thing other wise the uh i think u have to substitute the f for a number and times it by x
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
okay, in the chat it looked easier but i think i know what to do
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
u can substitute f for any number
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
You can find it with synthetic division
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
synthetic division never heard of it
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
ummm... i got lost.... sorry

Alright, so let's take a simple division.... 100/10 So you would take the 10 and put it on the outside, Then you would make the "Doghouse" symbol and put the 100 under that Does that make sense?
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
so that A looking thing is a doghouse symbol
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
yeah now it does

|dw:1450118011802:dw| is that right??
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Almost The 1 on the very left should be a different number, it should be negative Because on the bottom you had x+1 right? So you would have to find our what x value would give make x+1=0
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
it should have been a negative im learnu=ing from this
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
learning
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Right, a -1

|dw:1450118201130:dw|
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Correct!
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
then what do i do?
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Alright, so in the original problem, what was the highest exponent in the numerator?
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
wrong file!
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
don't pay attention to that
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
2
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Right, so the first number will be 1x, because you found that to be 1 after division and you're highest powers always go down by 1 when finding obliques using division
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
The second thing in the numerator of the original problem was an x, which is also x^1 So if you lower that, that would equal x^0, right? Which is 1. That make sense so far?
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
hey can u help me with something
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
yes it does
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
do u know what a linear function is
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
rise slope all that stuff
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Cool, so the second number you found in your answer is 0, so (x^0) times 0 is 0 Which means so far we have x + 0, with that -2 on the end The -2 is the last number in your answer, which means it was the remainder. You always scratch off those, since we don't bother with those
MaurticeWilliams
  • MaurticeWilliams
i know a little about it but always mess something up
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
Maurtice if you have a question could you post it instead of on my question haha
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
After scratching that off we get x+0, also known as?
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
wait so the answer is just x
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Exactly!
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
ahhh okay thank you so much!!

  • FortyTheRapper
Anytime!
