I get 2x^2 -2x+13 with a remainder of 36 when i divide f(x) by x-3

what can i do to go further?

You shouldn't be getting a remainder.

Did you do so by long division? You have likely made an error. If you can't spot it feel free to post a picture of your workings for us to look at

Yes I see now.

I think you should check your workings for mistakes; I got x = 3, 1/2 +/- i/2

Equation has non real roots.

ok since i can't see where i went wrong

here's my workings

Should get as quotient.

That's close, sorry I was late to see this.

It's very painful for me to read when you don't use exact values and use decimal approximations.

Hmm.. Don't worry then, I don't think any other way will be much faster.
