The question goes as follows:

The polynomial p(x) = x

^{3}+ kx + (3 - 2i)

where k is an unknown complex number. It is given to you that if p(x) is divided by

2x - (4 - i), then the remainder is 5 + i. Find the value of k.

My question is, how would I even start this kind of problem? Again, thanks for the help!
