# Find the Value of ‘M’, If Mx3 + 2x2 – 3 and X2 – Mx + 4 Leave the Same Remainder When Each is Divided by X – 2 - ICSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

Find the value of ‘m’, if mx3 + 2x2 – 3 and x2 – mx + 4 leave the same remainder when each is divided by x – 2

#### Solution

Let f(x) = mx3 + 2x2 – 3
g(x) = x2 – mx + 4
It is given that f(x) and g(x) leave the same remainder when divided by (x – 2). Therefore, we have:
f (2) = g (2)
m(2)3 + 2(2)2 – 3 = (2)2 – m(2) + 4
8m + 8 – 3 = 4 – 2m + 4
10m = 3
m = 3/10
