mx3-nx2+5x-1 is divided by x-2 the remainder is -39. When divided by x-1 the remainder is 3. What are the values of m and n. Didn't know how to do the superscript for mx3

• Pre Calculus -

use ^ for exponents

using synthetic division, the remainders are:

(x-2): 8m-4n+9
(x-1): m-n+4

so, we now know

8m-4n+9 = -39
m-n+4 = 3

(m,n) = (-11,-10)

f(x) = -11x^2 + 10x^2 + 5x - 1
