I have observed that p(x)=x^2 satisfies the given condition. Do we now have to substitute p(x) in the condition? How should we substitute?

1. Hint: you're looking for a function that can be written as a(x  1)² + 2x + 1 and has the value 15 when x = 3. 2. Let P(x) ? x² + Q(x), so that Q(x+1) ? Q(x). It follows (do you see why?) that Q(x) is a constant.
