Check HW 5.4 multiples of 3

EXAMPLE 1 Use polynomial long division Divide f (x) = 3x4 – 5x3 + 4x – 6 by x2 – 3x + 5. SOLUTION Write polynomial division in the same format you use when dividing numbers. Include a “0” as the coefficient of x2 in the dividend. At each stage, divide the term with the highest power in what is left of the dividend by the first term of the divisor. This gives the next term of the quotient.

) EXAMPLE 1 Use polynomial long division 3x2 + 4x – 3 x2 – 3x + 5
quotient x2 – 3x + 5 3x4 – 5x3 + 0x2 + 4x – 6 ) -(3x4 – 9x3 + 15x2) 4x3 – 15x x -(4x3 – 12x2 + 20x) –3x2 – 16x – 6 -(–3x2 + 9x – 15) –25x + 9 remainder 3x4 – 5x3 + 4x – 6 x2 – 3x + 5 = 3x2 + 4x – 3 + –25x + 9 ANSWER

) EXAMPLE 2 Use polynomial long division with a linear divisor
Divide f(x) = x3 + 5x2 – 7x + 2 by x – 2. x2 + 7x + 7 quotient x – 2 x3 + 5x2 – 7x ) -(x3 – 2x2) 7x2 – 7x -(7x2 – 14x) 7x + 2 -(7x – 14) 16 remainder ANSWER x3 + 5x2 – 7x +2 x – 2 = x2 + 7x + 7 + 16

GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 Divide using polynomial long division. (2x4 + x3 + x – 1) (x2 + 2x – 1) (2x2 – 3x + 8) + –18x + 7 x2 + 2x – 1 ANSWER (x3 – x2 + 4x – 10)  (x + 2) (x2 – 3x + 10) + –30 x + 2 ANSWER

GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 Divide using polynomial long division. (x3 – x2 + 4x – 10)  (x + 2) (x2 – 3x + 10) + –30 x + 2 ANSWER

EXAMPLE 3 Use synthetic division Divide f (x)= 2x3 + x2 – 8x + 5 by x + 3 using synthetic division. SOLUTION – – -6 15 -21 2 -5 7 -16

EXAMPLE 4 Factor a polynomial Factor f (x) = 3x3 – 4x2 – 28x – 16 completely given that x + 2 is a factor. SOLUTION -6 20 16 3 -10 -8

Use the result to write f (x) as a product of two
EXAMPLE 4 Factor a polynomial Use the result to write f (x) as a product of two factors and then factor completely. f (x) = 3x3 – 4x2 – 28x – 16 Write original polynomial. = (x + 2)(3x2 – 10x – 8) Write as a product of two factors. = (x + 2)(3x + 2)(x – 4) Factor trinomial.

GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 3 and 4 Divide using synthetic division. 3. (x3 + 4x2 – x – 1)  (x + 3) -3 -3 12 1 1 -4 11 x2 + x – 4 + 11 x + 3 ANSWER

(x – 4)(x –3)(x + 1) GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 3 and 4
Factor the polynomial completely given that x – 4 is a factor. f (x) = x3 – 6x2 + 5x + 12 (x – 4)(x –3)(x + 1) 4 -8 -12 1 -2 -3

Zeros are -2, 3, -3 GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 5 and 6
Find the other zeros of f given that f (–2) = 0. f (x) = x3 + 2x2 – 9x – 18 -2 18 Zeros are -2, 3, -3 1 -9

EXAMPLE 5 Standardized Test Practice SOLUTION Because f (3) = 0, x – 3 is a factor of f (x). Use synthetic division. –2 – –60

EXAMPLE 5 Standardized Test Practice Use the result to write f (x) as a product of two factors. Then factor completely. f (x) = x3 – 2x2 – 23x + 60 = (x – 3)(x2 + x – 20) = (x – 3)(x + 5)(x – 4) The zeros are 3, –5, and 4. The correct answer is A. ANSWER
