In the question, the dividend is (x3 – 2) and the divisor is (x-1).
Answer: When (x3 – 2) is divided by (x – 1), the remainder is -3.
Let's explore the long division of polynomials.
The long division of polynomial (x3 – 2) divided by (x – 1) is given by:
The remainder is -3. That means x-1 is not a factor of (x3 - 2).
