Expert Answer:

Factor Theorem  is a special case of Remainder Theorem . All the conditions remain same if the remainder happens to be zero then factor thm applies 

It says if a polynomial P(x) with degree greater than or equal to 1  is divided by a linear polynomial (x-a)  , if P(a)=0 then x-a is a factor of polynomial P(x).

Hope this clarifies the doubt
