#### Explanation:

divide the term

so you have

#x-4 * 3x^2 = 3x^3-12x^2# - Subtract this with the polynomial you get
#10x^2+5# #x-4 * 10x = 10x^2-40x# - Subtract this from the polynomial in step 2 to get
#40x+5# #x-4 * 40 = 40x-160# - Subtract this from the polynomial in step 4 to get
#165#

now the number cannot be divided further hence 165 is remainder
