can x2-1 be the quotient on division of x6+2x3+x-1 by a polynomial in x of degree 5.justify your answer.

Expert Answer:

No.
Since we are dividing by a polynomial of degree 5, all we need to do is cancel the x6 in synthetic division, and for that we'll multiply with x, and hence a possibility of getting x2 in quotient is improbable.
