Question 1:

Without actual division, show that (x3 – 3x2 – 13x + 15) is exactly divisible by (x2 + 2x – 3).

Let f(x) = x3 – 3x2 – 13x + 15

Now, x2 + 2x – 3 = x2 + 3x – x – 3

= x (x + 3) – 1 (x + 3)

= (x + 3) (x – 1)

Thus, f(x) will be exactly divisible by x2 + 2x – 3 = (x + 3) (x – 1)

if (x + 3) and (x – 1) are both factors of f(x), so by factor theorem,

we should have f(-3) = 0 and f(1) = 0.

Now, f(-3) = (-3)3 – 3 (-3)2 – 13 (-3) + 15

= -27 – 3 x 9 + 39 + 15

= -27 – 27 + 39 + 15

= -54 + 54 = 0

And, f(1) = 13 – 3 X 12 – 13 x 1 + 15

= 1 – 3 – 13 + 15

= 16 – 16 = 0

f(-3) = 0 and f(1) = 0

So, x2 + 2x – 3 divides f(x) exactly.

Question 2:

If (x3 + ax2 + bx + 6) has (x-2) as a factor and leaves a remainder 3 when divided by (x-3), find the values of a and b.

Let f(x) = (x3 + ax2 + bx + 6)

Now, by remainder theorem, f(x) when divided by (x – 3) will leave a remainder as f(3).

So, f(3) = 33 + a x 22 + b x 3 + 6 = 3

= 27 + 9a + 3b + 6 = 3

= 9a + 3b + 33 = 3

= 9a + 3b = 3-33

= 9a + 3b = -30

= 3a + b = -10 ….(i)

Given that (x – 2) is a factor of f(x).

By the Factor Theorem, (x – a) will be a factor of f(x) if f(a) = 0 and therefore f(2) = 0

. f(2) = 23 + a x 22 + b x 2 + 6 = 0

= 8 + 4a+ 2b + 6 = 0

= 4a + 2b = -14

= 2a + b = -7 ….(ii)

Subtracting (ii) from (i), we get,

a = -3

Substituting the value of a = -3 in (i), we get,

3(-3) + b = -10

-9 + b = -10

b = -10 + 9

b = -1

a = -3 and b = -1.
