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

Find the indicated value of the polynomial using the Remainder Theorem

p(x)=2x^3-2x^2+11x-100; find p(3)

2. Relevant equations

p(x)=2x^3-2x^2+11x-100

3. The attempt at a solution

Synthetic division

3] 2 -2 11 -100

6 12 69

2 4 23 [-31

answer: p(3)=-31

im not sure cuz i just followed the example in the book and applied it to this problem but the one in the book had another polynomial it was divided by to find the remainder. please help me, i have a test in the morning and im freaking out like crazy, thanks!!!
