## FACTORIZATION WORKSHEET QUESTION7

In this page factorization worksheet question7 we are going to see solution of seventh 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 Question7

Factorize each of the following polynomial 2 x³  - 9 x² + 7 x + 6

Solution

Let p (x) = 2 x³  - 9 x² + 7 x + 6

x = 1

p (1) = 2 (1)³ - 9 (1)² + 7 (1) + 6

= 2 - 9 + 7 + 6

= 9 - 9 + 6

= 6

≠ 0

So we can decide (x - 1) is not a factor.

x = -1

p (-1) = 2 (-1)³ - 9 (-1)² + 7 (-1) + 6

= - 2 - 9 - 7 + 6

= - 16 + 6

= -10

≠ 0

So we can decide (x + 1) is not a factor.

x = 2

p (2) = 2 (2)³ - 9 (2)² + 7 (2) + 6

= 16 - 36 + 14 + 6

= 36 - 36

= 0

So we can decide (x - 2) is a factor. To find other two factors we have to use synthetic division. So the factors are (x - 2) and (2 x² - 5 x - 3). By factoring this quadratic equation we get  (x - 3) (2 x + 1)

Therefore the required three factors are (x - 2) (x - 3) (2 x + 1) (1) Factorize each of the following polynomial x³ - 2 x² - 5 x + 6    Solution
