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)
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.
