Q:
# ***ANSWER ASAP****Use synthetic division to solve (x^3-x^2-17x-15)/(x-5)

Accepted Solution

A:

There's nothing to "solve" here; "solve" only applies to equations. Rather, you're expected to divide or simplify.

5 | 1 -1 -17 -15

. | 5 20 15

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

. | 1 4 3 0

which translates to

[tex]\dfrac{x^3-x^2-17x-15}{x-5}=x^2+4x+3[/tex]

5 | 1 -1 -17 -15

. | 5 20 15

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

. | 1 4 3 0

which translates to

[tex]\dfrac{x^3-x^2-17x-15}{x-5}=x^2+4x+3[/tex]
