Hi!

 

I'm having some trouble with this task..

 

Decide "a" to make the division complete:

 

(x2‚Äč + ax - 2) : (x - 2)

I don't really know what it means to make the division complete, but if  a = -1  , then...

 

\(\frac{x^2+ax-2}{x-2}\,=\,\frac{x^2-x-2}{x-2}\,=\,\frac{(x+1)(x-2)}{x-2}\,=\,x+1\qquad\text{, when}\,x\neq2\)
