FACTORISATION

1800 = (x y) 16

The technique of factoring is often one of

1800 = 16x 16y . (1) trial and error. The method of complete

factorization is applicable only if we can

1800 = (x + y) 9

convert the quadratic expression

1800 = 9x + 9y .(2) ax 2 + bx + c into two factors. Each factor

when equated to zero gives the value of the

16200 = 144 x 144 y

root. We check our answer by using

28800 = 144 x + 144 y calculator.

45000 = 288 x

Example:

x = 156.25

x 2 + 4 x 12 = 0

the small airplane is 156.25 miles per hour. ( x + 6)( x 2 ) = 0

Substituting into the second equation, we

( x + 6) = 0 or ( x 2 ) = 0

obtain the following: x = 6 or x = 2

1800 = 9 (156.25) = 9 y 2 x 2 + 5x 3 = 0

y = 43.75 ( 2 x 1)( x + 3) = 0

We have now determined that the speed of

( 2 x 1) = 0 or ( x + 3) = 0

the wind is 43.75 miles per hour. 1

x = or x = 3

2

Therefore, we have determined that the

average rate of speed of the airplane for the

1800 mile trip is 156.25 miles per hour and

the rate of speed of the wind is 43.75 miles

per hour

THEOREM

Factor Theorem

f(a) = 0.

f(x), f(a) = 0, then x-a is a factor of f(x)

factorizing polynomials of degree greater than

2.

Example:

Example: 9. Show that ( x - 3 ) is a factor of f(x).

Find the quotient and the remainder for Let x = 3

f(3) = 2(3)3 - (3)2 - 18(3) + 9

= 54 - 9 - 54 + 9

=0

factor of f(x).

(x + 2).Find the value of k.

Let x = -2

Since (x + 2) is a factor, then f(-2) = 0

Thus, (-2)3 + 8(-2)2 + k(-2) + 10 = 0

-8 + 32 - 2k + 10 = 0

-2k = -34

k = 17

Therefore, the quotient is x2 + 4x +11 and the

remainder is 35x - 39 Show that (x + 3) is a factor of x3 + 2x2 + x + 12.

Let x = -3

Example: Suppose f(x) = x3 + 2x2 + x + 12

Solve f(-3) = (-3)3 + 2(-3)2 + (-3) + 12

= -27 + 18 - 3 + 12

=0

Since f(-3) = 0 then it is shown that ( x + 3 ) is a

factor of f(x)

SES

42 Engineering Mathematics 1 (AQB10102)

Remainder Theorem b = -5

Substitute b = -5 in (1),

If a polynomial f(x) is divided by ( x - a ) , then

the remainder is f (a). 2a - (-5) = 7

2a = 2

Note : f (a) is the value of f (x) when x = a

a=1

Thus, f(x) = 2x3 + x2 - 5x + 2

The remainder of a polynomial when divided

by a linear function can be obtained from

a) Long division

b) The Remainder Theorem.

GIVES A (SIMPLE) METHOD FOR EVALUATING

THE REMAINDER ONLY. IF THE QUOTIENT IS

REQUIRED IN A QUESTION, LONG DIVISION

MUST BE USED.

Example:

divided by ( x + 2 ).

Let x = -2

f(-2) = 3(-2)5 - (-2)2 + 1

= -96 - 4 + 1

= -99

The remainder is -99

divisible by ( x + 2 ). The same expression

leaves a remainder of 12 on division by (x - 2 ).

Calculate the values of a and b.

Let f(x) = 2x3 + ax2 + bx + 2

f(-2) = 0

2(-2)3 + a(-2)2 + b(-2) + 2 = 0

-16 + 4a - 2b + 2 = 0

4a - 2b = 14

2a - b = 7 ---------------------------(1)

f(2) = 12

2(2)3 + a(2)2 + b(2) + 2 = 12

16 + 4a + 2b + 2 = 12

4a + 2b = -6

2a + b = -3 ---------------------------(2)
