Factor Theorem

The Factor theorem

Division Algorithm for Polynomials If F(x) and G(x) Denote Polynomial functions and if g(x) is not the zero polynomial, then there are unique polynomial functions q(x) and r(x) such that where r(x) is either the zero polynomial or a polynomial of degree less than of g(x)
Equation for Division Algorithm for Polynomials F(x)/G(x) =q(x) + R(x)/G(x) or F(x) = G(x)q(x) + R(x)
F(x) Dividend
G(x) Divisor
q(x) quotient
r(x) Remainder
