Math ( Polynomial )

posted by on .

If the polynomial, x^4 - 6x^3 + 16x^2 - 25x + 10 is divided by another polynomial x^2 - 2x + k, the remainder comes out to be x + a, find k + a, please work the complete solution instead of giving simply an answer.

    by using long division,
    divide x^4-6x^3+16x^2-25x+10with x^2-2x+k,
    then you will find:
    remainder=(-9+2k)x +10-8k+k^2
    comparing with x + a,
    -9+2k=1,k=5
    a=10-8k+k^2,a=-5

    therefore k + a=5-5=0
