1. we know that

5x^3+x^2+3 = p(x)*(5x^2-14x+42) - 123
so,
5x^3 + x^2 + 126 = p(x)*(5x^2 - 14x + 42)

a simple long division yields p(x) = (x+3)

f(x) is a polynomial equation. If you divide f(x) by 2x+1, the remainder is 4 and when we call dividend q(x), q(x) is multiple of x-1. What is g(1) if g(x) is the dividend of (x^2+x+1)f(x) divided by x+(1/2)?
