Find the remainder when y3 + y2 - 2y + 5 is dividedby y - 5.

y3 + y2 - 2y + 5 ÷ y - 5

Apply long division method to find the remainder.

We can also find the remainder by Remainder Theorem
we should evaluate p(5)
Let p(y) = y3 + y2 - 2y + 5
... p(5) = 53 + 52 - 2 x 5 + 5
= 125 + 25 - 10 + 5
= 145
Thus, we find that p(5) is the remainder when
p(y) is divided by y - 5.
