(x-3) is a factor of x to the power 3 + ax to the power 2+ bx - 9 and when it is divided by (x - 2) the remainder is 1
Asked by kushalsahu20march | 16 May, 2019, 11:56: AM
Let p(x) =x3 + ax2 + bx - 9
(x-3) is a factor of x3 + ax2 + bx - 9 .. given

→ p(3) = 0

→ (3)3 + a(3)2 + b(3) - 9 = 0

→ 27 + 9a + 3b - 9 = 0

→ 3a + b = -6  ... (i)

when p(x) is divided by (x - 2) the remainder is 1  ... given

→ p(2) = 1

→  (2)3 + a(2)2 + b(2) - 9 = 1

→  4a + 2b = 2
→  2a + b = 1   .... (ii)

Solving (i) and (ii), we get

a = -7 and b = 14
