# Remainder Theorem

Given that:
find the remainder if it exists, when is divided by

I cannot find a method to do this question, it should be remainder theorem, but do I multiply them and then find the roots by working thru the factors?

+ve rep for the latex. But is that the real question? You want to divide 1/f(x)?

Maybe my hap-handed latex is distracting. Here is the original question from the book:

and the answer is that it does not exist, and yet I don't know why?

My only guess would be to use the Taylor theorem to expand , then try and see if it's obvious from the first few terms. Not sure how else to do it though
