How do you use synthetic division to see if -1 is a zero of #h(x)=x^4+9x^3+18x-8#?
Step 1. Write only the coefficients of
Step 2. Put the test zero,
Step 3. Drop the first coefficient below the division symbol.
Step 4. Multiply the drop-down by the test zero, 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.
