Find the quotient when $x^9 + 1$ is divided by $x - 1.$ 

I keep on getting a remainder of 2, can somebody help me?

I f you get a reaminder of 2, remember...the Q is asking for the QUOTIENT   (not the remainder)

 

sooo the last part of your quotient would   be    2/(x-1)

If

f(x) =x^9+1      is divided by   x-1   then the remainder will be f(1)

 

Sorry, I have had an error pointed out to me.

 

f(1)= 1^9+1 = 2

therefore the remainder will be TWO.

 

Just like you though.

 

Get the quotient using long division.  

Guest is right about the fractional part.
