### Exercise 3.2

#### Question 1

Fill up the blanks :

(i) When x2+2x-3 is divided by (x-1) , remainder = __

Sol :

Divisor=x-1

Zero of x-1 is 1

∴ By remainder theorem ,

Remainder=p(1)=(1)2+2(1)-3

=1+2-3

=0

(ii) If (x-2) is a factor of the polynomial p(x)  , then p(2)= __

Sol :

⇒By factor theorem : Let p(x) be a polynomial in x of degree n≥1 and let a be any real number , then (x-a) is a factor of p(x) if and only if p(a)=0

⇒It is already given that (x-2) is factor of p(x) then according to theorem , p(2)=0

#### Question 2

What will be the remainder when y4-3y2+2y+1 is divided by (y-1) ?

Sol :

Divisor=y-1

Zero of y-1 is 1

∴ By remainder theorem ,

Remainder=p(1)=(1)4-3(1)2+2(1)+1

=1-3+2+1

=4-3

=1

#### Question 3

What will be the remainder when x2+4x+2 is divided by (x+2) ?

Sol :

Divisor=x+2

Zero of x+2 is -2

∴ By remainder theorem ,

Remainder=p(-2)=(-2)2+4(-2)+2

=4-8+2

=-2
