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

x3 – 3x + 1, x5 – 4x3 + x2 + 3x + 1

Check whether the first polynomial is a factor of the second polynomial by applying the division algorithm g(x) = x3 – 3x + 1, f(x) = x5 – 4x3 + x2 + 3x + 1

#### Solution

x3 - 3x + 1, x5 - 4x3 + x2 + 3x + 1

Since the remainder ≠ 0

Hence x3 - 3x + 1 is not a factor of x5 - 4x3 + x2 + 3x + 1
