Synthetic

Division

Let’s look at how to do this using the example:

In order to use synthetic division these two things must happen:

#1

There must be a coefficient for every possible power of the variable.

#2

The divisor must have a leading coefficient of 1.

Step #1: Write the terms of the polynomial so the degrees are in descending order.

Step #2: Write the constant a of the divisor x- a to the left and write down the coefficients.

Step #4: Multiply the first coefficient by r (3*5).

Step #3: Bring down the first coefficient, 5.

Step #5: After multiplying in the diagonals, add the column.

Multiply the diagonals, add the columns.
