How do you use synthetic division to divide #3x^3 + 2x^2 + 6x - 2# by #x+2#?
Step 1. Write only the coefficients of
Step 2. Change the sign of the constant in the divisor and put it at the left.
Step 3. Drop the first coefficient of the dividend below the division symbol.
Step 4. Multiply the drop-down by the divisor, and put the result in the next column.
Step 5. Add down the column.
Step 6. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until you can go no farther
The quotient is
