Determine the remainder using the remainder theorem
P(x) = 2x^3 + 3x^2 + 4x - 10; D(x) = x + 1
The Attempt at a Solution
x = -1
P(x) = -2 + 3 - 4 - 10
Can you have a negative remainder?
The next question says:
Decide whether or not the number is a zero of the polynomial.
Is that just another way of saying find the remainder?
