how to solve synthetic division with a radical factor

Jun 26th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

  •  I WII USE AN EXAMPLE ON HOW TO SOLVE SYNTHETIC DIVISION WITH A RADICAL FACTOR:    determine whether x – 4 is a factor of:

    –2x5 + 6x4 + 10x3 – 6x2 – 9x + 4

  • For x – 4 to be a factor, you must have x = 4 as a zero. Using this information, I'll do the synthetic division with x = 4 as the test zero on the left:

    Since the remainder is zero, then x = 4 is indeed a zero of –2x5 + 6x4 + 10x3 – 6x2 – 9x + 4, so:

      Yes, x – 4 is a factor of –2x5 + 6x4 + 10x3 – 6x2 – 9x + 4


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

let me look for a nice example

         function                       factors                        

f(x)=2x^3-x^2-10x+5         (2x-1)(x+radical5)

this is the problem I'm having trouble with
