#### Question

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

x^{2} + 3x + 1, 3x^{4} + 5x^{3} – 7x^{2} + 2x + 2

#### Solution

x^{2} + 3x + 1, 3x^{4} + 5x^{3} – 7x^{2} + 2x + 2

Since the remainder is 0

hence x^{2 }+ 3x +1 is a factor of 3x^{4} + 5x^{3} - 7x^{2} + 2x + 2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
