# If the polynomial x^4-6x^3-16x^2+25x+10 is divided by another polynomial x^2-2x+k , the remainder comes out to be x+a, find k and a. It is not +16x^2. You may think like that. Answer the question by keeping it as -16x^2 only.

X^2-2x+k )     x^4  - 6 x^3  - 16 x^2  + 25  x  + 10 ( x^2 - 4 x  - (24+k)
x^4  - 2x^3 + k x^2
===================
- 4 x^3  -(16+k) x^2  + 25 x
- 4 x^3  + 8 x^2  - 4 k x
=====================
- (16 + k + 8) x^2  + (25+4k) x   + 10
-(24 +k) x^2 + 2(24+k) x - (24+k) k
============================
(-23 + 2 k) x + (k^2+ 24 k +10)
-23 + 2 k = 1       =>  k = 12
k^2 + 24 k + 10 =  a      =>    a = 442
reminder = x + 442
