				   question:find coeff of x^3 in

(x-4)*(x-1)*(x+2)*(x+8)*(x+6).sir i want to know shortcut method at earliest

6 years ago


Answers : (1)



see the coefficient of x^3 wii be the

   sum of all the terms of form  x * x * X * a * b

we have only to select  a & b  , for this we have to select two  terms from (x-4)*(x-1)*(x+2)*(x+8)*(x+6).

 these can be

   ( -4 *-1 )   or (-4 *2 ) or ( 2 * 8 ).................

adding all such terms

  gives ,    4  -8  -32  -24 -2 -8 -6 +16 +12 +48

      = 0

so the coeff. of x^3 is 0

If a polynomial P(x) is divided by x-a, x-b, x-c, we get a,b,c as remainders respectively (x€R). Then what will be the remainder when P(x) is divided by (x-a)(x-b)(x-c)?
Using Remiander theorem f(a) is the remainder when f(x) is divided by x-a when f(x) is divided by q(x) the remainder will be having degree less than q(x) so when P(x) is divided by...

Note that P(a) =a, P(b) = b, and P(c) = c. Hence if we consider the polynomial Q(x) = P(x) – x, we see that Q(a) = Q(b) = Q(c) = 0. By Factor theorem we conclude (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) is a factor ...
