FACTORIZATION WORKSHEET QUESTION1

In this page factorization worksheet question1 we are going to see solution of first problem.

Step 1:  Arrange the dividend and the divisor according to the descending powers of x and then write the coefficients of dividend in the first zero. Insert 0 for missing terms.

Step 2:  Find out the zero of the divisor.

Step 3:  Put 0 for the first entry in the second row. 

Step 4:  Write down the quotient and remainder accordingly. All the entries except the last one  in the third row constitute the coefficients of the quotient.

Factorization Worksheet Question1

Question 1

Factorize each of the following polynomial x³ - 2 x² - 5 x + 6

Solution

Let p (x) = x³ - 2 x² - 5 x + 6

 x = 1

     p (1) = 1³ - 2 (1)² - 5 (1) + 6

             = 1 - 2 - 5 + 6

             = 7 - 7

             = 0

So we can decide (x - 1) is a factor. To find other two factors we have to use synthetic division. 

So the factors are (x - 1) and (x² - x - 6). By factoring this quadratic equation we get  (x - 3) (x + 2)

Therefore the required three factors are (x - 1) (x - 3) (x + 2)
