(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine the remainder using the remainder theorem

P(x) = 2x^3 + 3x^2 + 4x - 10; D(x) = x + 1

2. Relevant equations

Remainder Theorem

3. The attempt at a solution

x = -1

P(x) = -2 + 3 - 4 - 10

R -13

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?
