We can tell if this is a factor of the polynomial shown by using the remainder theorem.
First, we need to set x + 1 equal to 0.
x + 1 = 0
Now, we solve for x.
x = -1
Now, we can plug this value into the polynomial, and if the solution is 0, it means there is a remainder of 0, which means they divide perfectly.
(-1)^3 - 10(-1)^2 + 27(-1) - 12 = -50
x + 1 is not a factor of the provided polynomial.
No because the remainder is 50
The answer is A. No, but remainder is 0
