During half term our homework is to cover areas in the textbook we think need work. I am having a lot of trouble with the last Algebraic Division question.

The remainder when the expression x^3-2x^2+ax+b is divided by x-2 is five times the remainder when the same expression is divided by x-1, and 12 less than the remainder when the same expression is divided by x-3. Find the values of the constants a and b.

Honestly, I barely know where to start with this one.
