The factor theorem is like finding the factors of the polynomial, or that of an integer. A polynomial can be rewritten as a product of all its factors, much like an integer. This is part of the Prelim Maths Extension 1 Syllabus from the topic Functions: Polynomials. In this post, we will explore the remainder and factor theorems factor theorem. Here we will learn to prove and apply the factor theorem and the remainder theorem for polynomials and hence solve simple polynomial equations
Let’s explore the factor theorem in the following videos!
