In this video I go over further into the Polynomial Remainder Theorem and this time look at a special case of it, known as the Factor Theorem. Recall that the Remainder Theorem states that the remainder of a division of an univariant (single-variable) polynomial by the polynomial x – k is equal to f(a) and is a constant. A special case of this is when the remainder is equal to 0, which thus makes the polynomial x – k a factor of f(x). This means that f(k) = 0, or in other words k is a root of f(x) and x – k is a factor of f(x). This result is useful when performing factorization of polynomials in order to write them in terms of simpler, or lesser degree, polynomials. I illustrate this through a useful example as well. This is a very interesting illustration of how the factor theorem can be used to find factors of polynomials so make sure to watch this video!
