# Find the value of m so that 2x – 1 be a factor of 8𝑥4 + 4𝑥3−16𝑥2 + 10𝑥 + 𝑚.

let p(x) = 8x4 + 4x3−16x2 + 10x + m and g(x) = 2x – 1

Putting g(x) = 0 2x – 1 = 0 x = 1/2

According to the factor theorem if g(x) is a factor of p(x) then p (1/2) = 0

p(1/2) = 8(1/2)4 + 4(1/2)3−16(1/2)2 + 10(1/2) + 𝑚 = 0   Rate this question :
