Hello, I face this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

X^3 + X - 71 = (X^2 + 4X + 16)Q(X) + R(X), where Q and R are polynomials. Decide which they are.

I got that Q(X) = (X + 1/4) and that R(X) = - 75, but apparently it is wrong. I am stuck and don't know what to do.

Thanks in advance.
