**Factor Theorem**

Every Polynomial can be broken into the following format.

`P(x) = D(x) Q(x) + R(x)`

Then we can say

- if
`x - c`

is a factor of`P(x)`

then`P(c) = 0`

Introduction to Factor Theorem

*example* Find the value of `a`

and `b`

when `P(x) =ax^3 -(b -1)x^2 + x - 2`

is divisible by `x^2 -2x - 3`

.

**Key Ideas**

`x^2 -2x - 3`

has two factors `(x -3)`

and `(x + 1)`

.

Use Remainder theorem with the two factors.
