`        What is the remainder when x^23 is divided by x^2-3x+2 ?`
7 years ago

30 Points
```										Dear Vignesh,Solution:- x^2 - 3x + 2 can be written as (x-1)(x-2)
Also, x^23 can be written as [2(x-1) - (x-2)]23, which on Binomial expansion will give-
[2(x-1) - (x-2)]23 = [2(x-1)]23 + (-1) 23C1[2(x-1)]22 [(x-2)] + (-1)2 23C2[2(x-1)]21 [(x-2)]2 +.....(-1)22 23C22[2(x-1)] [(x-2)]22 + (-1)23 23C23 [(x-2)]23
As we can see, all the terms except first and last contains atleast one (x-1) and (x-2).
So, the terms that are not divisible by (x-1)(x-2) are [2(x-1)]23 and (-1)23 23C23 [(x-2)]23
Remainder = { [2(x-1)]23 + (-1)23 23C23 [(x-2)]23 } /(x-1)(x-2)
= { [2(x-1)]22 /(x-2)} - {[(x-2)]22 /(x-1)}Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.
