# Find Whether the First Polynomial is a Factor of the Second. Y − 2, 3y3 + 5y2 + 5y + 2 - Mathematics

Sum

Find whether the first polynomial is a factor of the second.

y − 2, 3y3 + 5y2 + 5y + 2

#### Solution

$\frac{{3y}^3 {+5y}^2 +5y+2}{y-2}$
$= \frac{{3y}^2 (y-2)+11y(y-2)+27(y-2)+56}{y-2}$
$= \frac{{(y-2)(3y}^2 +11y+27)+56}{y-2}$
${=(3y}^2 +11y+27)+ \frac{56}{y-2}$
$\because \text{Remainder} = 56$
$\therefore \text{(y-2) is not a factor of}\ {3y}^3 {+5y}^2 +5y+2.$
