Find the value of a and b so that the polynomial x3 – 4x2 + ax + b is exactly divisible by x – 2 as well as x + 1.

 

\(f(x)=x^3-4x^2+ax+b\\ f(2)=8-16+2a+b=0\\ \qquad 2a+b=8 \qquad(1)\\ f(-1)=-1-4-a+b=0\\ \qquad -a+b=5 \qquad(2) \)

 

 

Now solve equations 1 and 2 simultaneously.

 

Guest if you do not understand then say what it is that you do not understand.  (and someone will help you further)

 

 

Please no one answer over me.
