Question 1. Asked on :12 January 2019:10:45:37 AM

#### If the polynomials ax3+3x2-13 and 2x3-5x+a , are divided by x+2 if the remainder in each case is the same, then find the value of 'a'

When p(x) is divided by (x-2),

By remainder theorem,

Remainder= p(2)

p(2)=a*2^3 + 3*2^2 - 13

=a*8+3*4-13

=8a+12-13 = 8a-1

p(2) = 2*2^3-5*2+a

=2*8-10+a

=16-10+a = 6+a

Since the remainders of ax^3+3x^2-13 and 2x^3-5x+a are same when divided by x-2,

8a-1 = 6+a

8a-6+a=1

8a+8=1-6=-5

8a=-5-8 =-13

a=-13/8
