# How do you use synthetic division to divide y= x^3 + 3x^2 - 13x - 15 , (x + 5)?

Quotient ${x}^{2} - 2 x - 3.$ Remainder 0
Write coefficients of ${x}^{3} , {x}^{2} , x$and the constant in a row and divisor would be the x value obtained by equation x+5=0. The sequence of multiplications would be as shown:
