You can (in each case) start by realizing that

${x}^{2}+2x+2=0$

if and only if

$(x+1{)}^{2}=-1$

in whatever field you're working in. You've already noted that this doesn't work in

In ${\mathbb{Z}}_{3}$, this becomes

$(x+1{)}^{2}=2,$

but the only squares in ${\mathbb{Z}}_{3}$ are 0 and 1, so this is impossible. In ${\mathbb{Z}}_{5}$ becomes

$(x+1{)}^{2}=4.$

Now, ${2}^{2}={3}^{2}=4$, so 1 and 2 are the zeros of f(x) in ${\mathbb{Z}}_{5}$

${x}^{2}+2x+2=0$

if and only if

$(x+1{)}^{2}=-1$

in whatever field you're working in. You've already noted that this doesn't work in

If the directions is to simplify the following polynomials, then explain what I perhaps did wrong or explain what the answer should be.

$3{x}^{2}\left(5x\right)(-\frac{2}{3}{x}^{3})\to 15{x}^{3}-2{x}^{5}$

Consider the polynomial $f(x)={x}^{3}+ax+b$, where a and b are constants. If $f(x+1004)$ leaves a remainder of 36 upon division by $x+1005$, and $f(x+1005)$ leaves a remainder of 42 upon division by $x+1004$, what is the value of $a+b$?
