(3x-25x2 -20) divided by (x-3)

Step 2

Now using the synthetic division where the divisor is a binomial in the form (x-k).

The steps are,

1.Write K for the divisor.

2.Write the coefficients of the dividend.

3.Then bring down the leading coefficient.

4.Now multiply the leading coefficient by...
