Properties for Using Synthetic Division Division Algorithm: Let f(x) and g(x) be polynomials with g(x) of lower degree than f(x). There exists a unique quotient, q(x) and remainder, r(x) where Special Case: For this case you can use synthetic division. Copyright © 2008 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 3-20

The Remainder Theorem If the polynomial f(x) is divided by x-k, then the remainder is equal to f(k). Zeros, Roots and x-intercepts: A zero of a polynomial function f is a number such that f(k) = 0 (the remainder). The real number zeros are the x-intercepts of the graph of the function. The Remainder Thm is a quick way to decide if a number k is a zero of f(x). A zero of f(x) is a root or solution of the equation f(x)=0. Copyright © 2008 Pearson Addison-Wesley.
