Just like factors of an integer, right?

What is the definition of a "factor?"
Ffrocks3
  • Ffrocks3
a number or quantity that when multiplied with another produces a given number or expression.

In this^ frame work we may replace a, b, and c with polynomials because a polynomial is simply a sum of monomials.

Let's say our given polynomial can be written as a product. Then each of the factors can be called a number or quantity that when multiplied with another produces a given number or expression.

Now the "zeros of a polynomial function" is when we replace c in ab =c with 0. We want ab = 0 to be a true statement This can only be true if and only if a = 0 or b = 0. This^ is called the "zero-product property" Now you know why I made such a big deal out of the definition of a "factor" :)

And, finally the solutions of a polynomial equation are those values of the variable that make the above equation a true statement.
