Check whether the first polynomial is a factor of the second polynomial by dividing the second polynomial by the first polynomial:

P(x) = x3 – 3x + 1 and q(x) = x5 – 4x3 + x2 + 3x + 1

Answer :

By long division method,



Since the remainder ≠0,


Hence, x3 – 3x + 1 is not a factor of x5 – 4x3 + x2 + 3x + 1.
