Suppose f is a polynomial such that f(0) = 47, f(1) = 32, f(2) = -13, and f(3)=16. What is the sum of the coefficients of f? I asked a helper and he said focus on what the question asks for. I still dont get how to do it.

Plus, this polynomial division problem is challenging for me.

There is a polynomial which, when multiplied by x^2 + 2x + 3, gives 2x^5 + 3x^4 + 8x^3 + 8x^2 + 18x + 9. What is that polynomial?

Hi;

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**
