 Rational polynomial expressions 2007-06-09 From a student:I have a question that continues to lead me to the answer x/(x - 1) but according to my math book, the answer should be 1/(x - 1). Who is right? Who is wrong? Here is the question: (x^2 - 6x - 27)/(x^2 - 11x + 18) DIVIDED by (x^3 + 2x^2 - 3x)/(x^2 - 2x)Answered by Stephen La Rocque. Dividing polynomials 2001-02-19 From Janna:I have two questions involving dividing polynomials by polynomials. Here's the first one: Two factors of 12a4 -39a2 + 8a - 8a3 + 12 are a - 2 and 2a + 1. Find the other factors. The other question I'm stuck on is: When 10x3 + mx2 - x + 10 is divided by 5x-3, the quotient is 2x2 + nx - 2 and the remainder is 4. Find the values of m and n.
