# Find the remainder when (x^{3} – 2) is divided by (x – 1). What is the remainder?

The dividend here is (x^{3} – 2) and (x-1) is the divisor.

## Answer: The remainder when (x^{3} – 2) is divided by (x – 1) is -3

Let's explore the long division of polynomials.

**Explanation:**

The long division of polynomial (x^{3} – 2) divided by (x – 1) is given by:

The remainder is -3. That means x-1 is not a factor of (x^{3} - 2).
