How do you use the remainder theorem and synthetic division to find k=2; #f(x)=-5x^5-5x^3-2x^2+2#?

Using Synthetic Division:
- Put each coefficient including missing coefficients in the first row
- Drop the first coefficient down
- Multiply this coefficient by the multiplier
#k=2#and place in the second row below the 2nd coefficient
- Add the two rows.
- Repeat steps 3 & 4 until finished.
- The last sum is the remainder
