# When X^3 + 2x ^2– Kx + 4 Is Divided by X – 2, the Remainder is K. Find the Value of Constant K. - Mathematics

Sum

When x^3 + 2x ^2– kx + 4 is divided by x – 2, the remainder is k. Find the value of constant  k.

#### Solution

Left f(x)=x^3+2x^2-kx+4

x-2=0⇒x=2

on dividing f (x) by x-2,, it leaves a remainder K.

∴ f(2)=k

(2)^3+2(2)^2-k(2)+4=k

8+8-2k+4=k

20=3k

k=20/3=6(2)/3
