1. i'm pretty sure that iit is a quality examination and this is a fairly simple question so I'm not going to answer this

2. this is a pretty basic application of the remainder theorem so if you don't know it you can look it up

3.
x+y=a
x^2+y^2=a^2-2xy
x^2+y^2=a^2-2b

moving on,
1/x^3+1/y^3=(a(x^2+y^2-b))/(b^3)=(a(a^2-2b-b))/(b^3)=(a^3-3ab)/(b^3)
