Exercise 2.3 Page: 36

1. Divide the polynomial p(x) by the polynomial g(x) and find the quotient and remainder in each of the following:

(i) p(x) = x3-3x2+5x–3 , g(x) = x2–2

Solution:

Given,

Dividend = p(x) = x3-3x2+5x–3

Divisor = g(x) = x2– 2

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 2-2

Therefore, upon division we get,

Quotient = x–3

Remainder = 7x–9

(ii) p(x) = x4-3x2+4x+5 , g(x) = x2+1-x

Solution:

Given,

Dividend = p(x) = x– 3x+ 4x +5

Divisor = g(x) = x2 +1-x

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 2-3

Therefore, upon division we get,

Quotient = x+ x–3

Remainder = 8

(iii) p(x) =x4–5x+6, g(x) = 2–x2

Solution:

Given,

Dividend = p(x) =x4 – 5x + 6 = x+0x2–5x+6

Divisor = g(x) = 2–x2 = –x2+2

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 2-4

Therefore, upon division we get,

Quotient = -x2-2

Remainder = -5x + 10

2. Check whether the first polynomial is a factor of the second polynomial by dividing the second polynomial by the first polynomial:

(i) t2-3, 2t+3t3-2t2-9t-12

Solutions:

Given,

First polynomial = t2-3

Second polynomial = 2t+3t3-2t-9t-12

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 2-5

As we can see, the remainder is left as 0. Therefore, we say that, t2-3 is a factor of 2t2+3t+4.

(ii)x2+3x+1 , 3x4+5x3-7x2+2x+2

Solutions:

Given,

First polynomial = x2+3x+1

Second polynomial = 3x4+5x3-7x2+2x+2

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 2-6

As we can see, the remainder is left as 0. Therefore, we say that, x2 + 3x + 1 is a factor of 3x4+5x3-7x2+2x+2.

(iii) x3-3x+1, x5-4x3+x2+3x+1

Solutions:

Given,

First polynomial = x3-3x+1

Second polynomial = x5-4x3+x2+3x+1

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 2-7

As we can see, the remainder is not equal to 0. Therefore, we say that, x3-3x+1 is not a factor of x5-4x3+x2+3x+1 .

3. Obtain all other zeroes of 3x4+6x3-2x2-10x-5, if two of its zeroes are √(5/3) and – √(5/3).

Solutions:

Since this is a polynomial equation of degree 4, hence there will be total 4 roots.

√(5/3) and – √(5/3) are zeroes of polynomial f(x).

∴ (x –√(5/3)) (x+√(5/3) = x2-(5/3) = 0

(3x2−5)=0, is a factor of given polynomial f(x).

Now, when we will divide f(x) by (3x2−5) the quotient obtained will also be a factor of f(x) and the remainder will be 0.

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 2-8

Therefore, 3x+6x−2x−10x–5 = (3x–5)(x2+2x+1)

Now, on further factorizing (x2+2x+1) we get,

x2+2x+1 = x2+x+x+1 = 0

x(x+1)+1(x+1) = 0

(x+1)(x+1) = 0

So, its zeroes are given by: x= −1 and x = −1.

Therefore, all four zeroes of given polynomial equation are:

√(5/3),- √(5/3) , −1 and −1.

Hence, is the answer.

4. On dividing x3-3x2+x+2 by a polynomial g(x), the quotient and remainder were x–2 and –2x+4, respectively. Find g(x).

Solution:

Given,

Dividend, p(x) = x3-3x2+x+2

Quotient = x-2

Remainder = –2x+4

We have to find the value of Divisor, g(x) =?

As we know,

Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder

∴ x3-3x2+x+2 = g(x)×(x-2) + (-2x+4)

x3-3x2+x+2-(-2x+4) = g(x)×(x-2)

Therefore, g(x) × (x-2) = x3-3x2+x+2

Now, for finding g(x) we will divide x3-3x2+x+2 with (x-2)

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 2-9

Therefore, g(x) = (x2–x+1)

5. Give examples of polynomials p(x), g(x), q(x) and r(x), which satisfy the division algorithm and

(i) deg p(x) = deg q(x)

(ii) deg q(x) = deg r(x)

(iii) deg r(x) = 0

Solutions:

According to the division algorithm, dividend p(x) and divisor g(x) are two polynomials, where g(x)≠0. Then we can find the value of quotient q(x) and remainder r(x), with the help of below given formula;

Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder

∴ p(x) = g(x)×q(x)+r(x)

Where r(x) = 0 or degree of r(x)< degree of g(x).

Now let us proof the three given cases as per division algorithm by taking examples for each.

(i) deg p(x) = deg q(x)

Degree of dividend is equal to degree of quotient, only when the divisor is a constant term.

Let us take an example, 3x2+3x+3 is a polynomial to be divided by 3.

So, (3x2+3x+3)/3 = x2+x+1 = q(x)

Thus, you can see, the degree of quotient is equal to the degree of dividend.

Hence, division algorithm is satisfied here.

(ii) deg q(x) = deg r(x)

Let us take an example , p(x)=x2+x is a polynomial to be divided by g(x)=x.

So, (x2+x)/x = x+1 = q(x)

Also, remainder, r(x) = 0

Thus, you can see, the degree of quotient is equal to the degree of remainder.

Hence, division algorithm is satisfied here.

(iii) deg r(x) = 0

The degree of remainder is 0 only when the remainder left after division algorithm is constant.

Let us take an example, p(x) = x2+1 is a polynomial to be divided by g(x)=x.

So,( x2+1)/x= x=q(x)

And r(x)=1

Clearly, the degree of remainder here is 0.

Hence, division algorithm is satisfied here.
