Find the Values of the constants in the following indentities.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A(X^2 -1) + B(X - 1) + C = (3x -1)(x +1)

AX^2 - A + Bx - B + C = 3x^2 + 3x -x -1

Ok, Is this correct so far?

AX^2 = 3x^2 :. A = 3

Is correct ?

Bx = 3x = b = 3 ?

C = -1 ?

I'm sure this is wrong, I just need help explaining why and correcting my errors. It seems i need to simplify it more before comparing the co-efficients.

Thanks in advanced guys,

Probably all find this easy
