Factor and remainder theorems

*

For the polynomial P(x), (x-a) is a factor of P(x) if P(a)=0. This is a
special case of the more general result which states that for the
polynomial P(x), (ax-b) is a factor of P(x) if

*

If the polynomial P(x) is divided by (x-a) then the remainder is P(a).
This is a special case for the more general result which states that if the
polynomial P(x) is divided by (ax - b) then the remainder is
