I've already read an article by "Math is Fun" and "Purple Math," but I can't seem to wrap my head around the concept.

When you divide a polynomial f(x) by x-c you get: f(x) = (x-c)·q(x) + r(x) But r(x) is simply the constant r (remember? when you divide by (x-c) the remainder is a constant) .... so you get this: f(x) = (x-c)·q(x) + r Now see what happens when x is equal to c: f(c) = (c-c)·q(c) + r f(c) = (0)·q(c) + r f(c) = r

What does each of those terms mean? What is "x-c" what do the variables represent in this sense?
