My attempt is: We guess for $p(x)$ an inverse polynomial $q(x)=2x+3$,


The existence of such an inverse verifies this is a unit in $\mathbb{Z}_8[x]$

Except that you probably meant to write mod $8$ at the end, rather than mod $9$, this looks good.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes you are correct its supposed to be mod 8, thanks $\endgroup$ – Dillain Smith Apr 2 at 22:22
