# Remainder theorem: finding remainder from equation

The Polynomial Remainder Theorem simplifies the process of finding the remainder when dividing a polynomial by
\[x - a\]. Instead of long division, you just evaluate the polynomial at
\[a\]. This method saves time and space, making polynomial division more manageable.
