# Find the Quotient and the Remainder When : 6x2 + X − 15 is Divided by 3x +5. Verify Your Answer. - Mathematics

Sum

Find the quotient and the remainder when :
6x2 + x  − 15 is divided by 3x +5. verify your answer.

#### Solution

3"x"+5)overline(6"x"^2+"x"−15)(2"x"−3
6x2  + 10x
−     −
−9x − 15
−9x − 15
+     +
×

∴ Quotient = 2x − 3 and remainder = 0

Verification :

Dividend = Quotient × Divisor + Reminder

= (2x − 3) (3x + 5) + 0

= 6x2 + 10x − 9x − 15 + 0

= 6x2 − x − 15 which is given
