Additional Mathematics Formula that are within the syllabus and which need to be learnt. The remainder theorem Given the polynomial f(x), then remainder when f(x) is divided by (x – a) is f(a). The factor theorem If the remainder when f(x) is divided by (x – a) is 0, then (x – a) is a factor of f(x) and x = a is a root of the equation f(x) = 0 Solution of quadratic equations By formula and completing the square For the quadratic equation ax 2 bx c 0 x b b 2 4ac 2a Binomial expansion Know how to derive terms in the expansions of (1 + x)n and (a + b)n where n is a positive integer. n n!
