B Remainder of polynomial division

  1. Dec 13, 2017 #1
    Is this true?

    If the remainder of f(x) / g(x) is a (where a is constant), then the remainder of (f(x))n / g(x) is an

    I don't know how to be sure whether it is correct or wrong. I just did several examples and it works.

    Thanks

    One way to deal with remainders is to write down what it means, which is always a good point to start at.
    Here you have ##f(x)=q(x)\cdot g(x) + a##. Now you can work with it.
