(5x3 + 6x + 256) (x + 4) Use synthetic division to divideAnswer by nyc_function(2733)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The divisor given to you is (x + 4). We plug that into (x - c). Then we use the new value for c as the main factor to multiply each coefficient with. (x - c) = (x - 4) We will use -4 as the main factor to multiply each coefficient with. Also, since no x squared term was given in your numerator, we must keep descending order of exponents when doing division of polynomials. So, the new numerator becomes 5x^2 + 0x^2 + 6x + 256 The answer will be in the form trinomilal - remainder/original divisor Answer: 5x^2 - 20x + 86 - [88/(x + 4)] To learn how to do this yourself, visit the link below. http://www.wtamu.edu/academic/anns/mps/math/mathlab/col_algebra/col_alg_tut37_syndiv.htm
