Performing synthetic division, we have

 

1  [   1    0    0    0    0    0   0    0   0   0   0  0   0    1 ]

              1    1    1    1    1   1    1   1   1   1  1   1    1

          ____________________________________

        1    1    1    1    1     1   1   1   1    1   1  1   1   2

 

The remainder is 2

Find the remainder when r^13 + 1 is divided by r-1.

 

Geometric sequence:

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \displaystyle 1+r+r^2+r^3+r^4+\ldots +r^{12} &=& \displaystyle\frac{r^{13}-1}{r-1} \\\\ \displaystyle 1+r+r^2+r^3+r^4+\ldots +r^{12} &=& \displaystyle\frac{r^{13}}{r-1}- \frac{1}{r-1} \quad & | \quad + \frac{2}{r-1} \\\\ \displaystyle 1+r+r^2+r^3+r^4+\ldots +r^{12} +\frac{2}{r-1} &=& \displaystyle\frac{r^{13}}{r-1}- \frac{1}{r-1} + \frac{2}{r-1} \\\\ \displaystyle 1+r+r^2+r^3+r^4+\ldots +r^{12} +\frac{2}{r-1} &=& \displaystyle\frac{r^{13}}{r-1}+ \frac{1}{r-1} \\\\ \displaystyle 1+r+r^2+r^3+r^4+\ldots +r^{12} +\frac{\color{red}2}{r-1} &=& \displaystyle\frac{r^{13}+1}{r-1} \\ \hline \end{array}\)

 

The remainder is 2.
