The chapter is about Polynomials and the there are few questions on remainder theorem. If p(x) is divided by (ax-b) where a and b are constants, the remainder will be b/a. The teacher gave one extra out-of-portion question.

Find the remainder when $x^{2014}+x^{2013}$ is divided by $x^2-1$.

The divisor is quadratic. So the remainder will either be linear or constant. I don't know how to find remainder here. But I found it using division $x+1$. Is there any way to find the remainder here
