The remainder theorem has to do

with finding the value of a polynomial

p(x) at x=a

Using synthetic division set x=2 ...

The remainder will be the value of

p(2)

x

^{4}+ 10x^{3 }+ 8x^{2}+ 4x + 102 | 1 10 8 4 10

| 2 24 64 136

----------------------------

1 12 32 68 146

The remainder theorm says that

p(2) = 146
