49. If x+1 is a factor of 2x3 + ax2 + 2bx + 1, then find the values of a and b given that 2a - 3b = 4

Solution

Since (x+1) is a factor of 2x3 + ax2 + 2bx + 1, so
2(-1)3 + a(-1)2 + 2b(-1) + 1 = 0
⇒ -2 + a - 2b + 1 = 0
⇒ a - 2b - 1 = 0
⇒ a - 2b = 1 ...(i)
Also, we are given
2a - 3b = 4 ...(ii)
From (i) and (ii) we get
a = 1 + 2b ...(iii)
Substituting the value of a in (ii), we get
2(1 + 2b) - 3b = 4
⇒ 2 + 4b - 3b = 4
⇒ b = 2
Putting b = 2 in (iii), we get
a = 1 + 2 × 2 = 5
Thus, the value of a = 5 and b = 2.

Adding (i) and (ii), we get
4x + 4y = 20
⇒ x + y = 5 ....(iii)
Subtracting (i) from (ii), we get
2x - 2y = -6
⇒ x - y = -3 ....(iv)
Adding (iii) and (iv), we get
2x = 2
⇒ x = 1
Putting x = 1 in (iii), we get
1+y = 5
⇒ y = 4
Thus, x = 1 and y = 4.
