## Study Notes

### Polynomials

#### Addition of Polynomials

- To add two or more polynomials, combine like terms
- Add corresponding coefficients
- Example:
`(2x^2 + 3x - 1) + (x^2 - 2x - 3) = 3x^2 + x - 4`

#### Subtraction of Polynomials

- To subtract one polynomial from another, change the sign of the polynomial being subtracted and add
- Example:
`(2x^2 + 3x - 1) - (x^2 - 2x - 3) = x^2 + 5x + 2`

#### Multiplication of Polynomials

- To multiply two polynomials, multiply each term of one polynomial by each term of the other
- Combine like terms
- Example:
`(2x + 3)(x + 2) = 2x^2 + 7x + 6`

#### Factorization of Polynomials

- Factorization: expressing a polynomial as a product of simpler expressions
- Methods:
- Factoring out greatest common factor (GCF)
- Factoring quadratic expressions (e.g., difference of squares)
- Factoring sum or difference of cubes

- Example:
`x^2 + 5x + 6 = (x + 3)(x + 2)`

#### Remainder Theorem

- If a polynomial
`f(x)`

is divided by`(x - a)`

, the remainder is`f(a)`

- Example: if
`f(x) = x^2 + 2x - 3`

, then`f(2) = 2^2 + 2(2) - 3 = 5`

, which is the remainder when dividing`f(x)`

by`(x - 2)`

- The Remainder Theorem is useful for evaluating polynomials and finding roots.

### Polynomials

### Addition of Polynomials

- Combine like terms to add two or more polynomials
- Add corresponding coefficients to get the resulting polynomial

### Subtraction of Polynomials

- Change the sign of the polynomial being subtracted and add to get the resulting polynomial
- Subtracting a polynomial is equivalent to adding its negative

### Multiplication of Polynomials

- Multiply each term of one polynomial by each term of the other to get the product
- Combine like terms to simplify the resulting polynomial

### Factorization of Polynomials

- Factorization is expressing a polynomial as a product of simpler expressions
- Methods of factorization include:
- Factoring out the greatest common factor (GCF)
- Factoring quadratic expressions (e.g., difference of squares)
- Factoring sum or difference of cubes

- Factorization can be used to simplify polynomials and solve equations

### Remainder Theorem

- The remainder of dividing a polynomial
`f(x)`

by`(x - a)`

is`f(a)`

- The Remainder Theorem is useful for evaluating polynomials and finding roots
- The theorem can be used to find the remainder of dividing a polynomial by a linear factor
