We know a little bit about polynomials and functions, we can start to understand how we can express them using factors and remainders. Let’s explore the remainder theorem, which is similar to that of finding a remainder from long division using integers. This is part of the Prelim Maths Extension 1 Syllabus from the topic Functions: Polynomials. In this post, we will explore Remainder and factor theorems remainder theorem.
In the following videos, we will learn to prove and apply the factor theorem and the remainder theorem for polynomials and hence solve simple polynomial equations.
