Remainder theorem to find the remainder when f(x) is divided by the given xk
f(x)=x^34x^2+2x+4; x+2
2 x 4 2 4
1 2 4 4
1 2 2 8
2)x^34x^2+2x+4. (X^32x^22x) is the answer
x^3 2x^2+2x
2x^2+4x
6x+4
2x+4
8x+8
I'm not sure the bottom is right

If you are dividing by x+2, the remainder cannot be 8x+8
The remainder theorem says that the remainder when dividing by (xa) is f(a)
f(2) = 8  4(4) + 2(2) + 4 = 24

i'm really not sure how to do this question. (3x+2k)^3+(4x7)^2 has a remainder of 33 when divided by x3. find k. i tried to expand the expression, but i don't get a polynomial, so how do i apply the remainder theorem? 
Remainder Theorem
Use the remainder theorem to: find the remainder when f(x) is divided by x – c, and determine whether x – c is a factor of f(x). f(x) = x^4  8x^3 + 9x^2  69x + 24 ; x  8 Please show all of your work.
