Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you divide a polynomial f(x) by xc you get: f(x) = (xc)·q(x) + r(x) But r(x) is simply the constant r (remember? when you divide by (xc) the remainder is a constant) .... so you get this: f(x) = (xc)·q(x) + r Now see what happens when x is equal to c: f(c) = (cc)·q(c) + r f(c) = (0)·q(c) + r f(c) = r

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What does each of those terms mean? What is "xc" what do the variables represent in this sense?
