Then ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( x b x r x q x b x a + = . The degree of the remainder polynomial r is less than the degree of divisor polynomial b , written deg r < deg b . Multiplying both sides of the equation ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( x b x r x q x b x a + = by ) ( x r , we have that ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( x r x q x b x a + = .
