Factor Theorem | Algebra | Chegg Tutors Factor Theorem | Algebra | Chegg Tutors

The factor theorem is a theorem linking factors and zeros of a polynomial. It is commonly applied to factorizing and finding the roots of polynomial equations. The theorem states that x-r is a factor of a polynomial f(x)if f(r) = 0 ;that is, r is a root of f(x). Factor theorem problems are typically solved by applying synthetic division and then checking for a zero remainder. The remainder theorem is often used with the factor theorem. It states that if a polynomial f(x) is divided by a linear divisor x-r, the remainder is f(r). If f(r) = 0, then the remainder is 0 and f(x) = (x-r)Q(x), showing that is a factor of f(x).
