# What first degree polynomial added to 2x3 – 3x2 + 5x + 1 gives a multiple of x2 – 1?

Given, 2x3 – 3x2 + 5x + 1

Need to find the first degree polynomial if added to the equation gets the multiple of x2 – 1

2x3 – 3x2 + 5x + 1 can be written as 2(x3 x2 + x + )

x3 x2 + x + = (x2 – 1)(x – a) + b

= x3 – ax2 – x + a + b

a = and a + b =

b = – 1
