Professor Fraser dropped the - sign on the
f(4) example on the last term (-7) on slide Synthetic Substitution Example

Remainder and Factor Theorems

  • Use synthetic substitution to evaluate a polynomial of degree 4 or more for a specific value.

  • Use synthetic division to find the factors of a polynomial of degree 3 or more. Guess and then check your guess by synthetic division. Once you find one factor, use synthetic division to find a factor of the quotient. Keep going until the quotient is quadratic. At this point, use the quadratic formula to factor the quadratic.
