we can prove that $$F(x) = G(x)$$ for all x by using cross multiplication

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Write the given data

Let us consider

$$\frac{{F(x)}}{{Q(x)}} = \frac{{G(x)}}{{Q(x)}}$$

We know that all the functions are polynomials.

By the definition we know that F,G, Q are all continuous

## Step2: Apply the cross multiplication

So therefore we can cross multiply equations.

$$F(x)Q(x) = G(x)Q(x)$$ and $$Q(x) \ne 0$$

Since all are continuous for all x, so we can divide by $$Q(x)$$ to obtain

$$F(x) = G(x)$$

Hence, we can prove that $$F(x) = G(x)$$ for all x. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
