A(x) = B(x)Q(x)
here, Q(x) is quotient polynomial when A(x) is divided by B(x)

A R(x) term doesn't appear in the equation, so it must be zero.

generally, when dividing 2 polynomials, we have
A(x) = B(x)Q(x) +R(x)

Just like if you write 2x^25x in the form ax^2+bx+c, c=0.

here R(x) is not present, hence 0
