In each of the following, use factor theorem to find whether polynomial g(x) is a factor of polynomial f(x) or, not:

f(x) = x3-6x2-19x+84, g(x) = x-7

Answer :

We have,

f(x) = x3-6x2-19x+84 and g(x) = x-7


In order to find whether g (x) = x – 7 is a factor of f (x) or not, it is sufficient to show that f (7) = 0


Now,


f(x) = x3-6x2-19x+84


f (7) = (7)3 – 6 (7)2 – 19 (7) + 84


= 343 – 294 – 133 + 84


= 0


Hence, g (x) is a factor of f (x).
