Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was tryin to do synthetic division...failed epically. I did this on a quiz before, but it wasn't at all how we supposed to do it, I just rationalized it out...but now I don't remember how I did it. And I don't have my book with me, test tomo...ya not a good deal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK.. I think I have it... it is a weird answer. Synthetic division... You would use 4 4 X 0 146 0 32 36 144 8 32 9 36 2 8 0 so the x = 9 because there is already a  sign in the problem. Do you want to know how I did it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04 x 0 146 0 32 because you want the answer 0 there needs to be a 0 0 right there so what do you need to put between the two so it adds to 0 4 x 0 146 0 32 32 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now how does a 32 get in that spot.. it comes from 4 * ( ) that is in the bottom of the next to last column 4 x 0 146 0 32 32 8 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then what do you have to put in to make it add to (8) 4 x 0 146 0 32 8 32 2 8 0 Etc. make sure you know you just bring down the x for the first step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah...and it didn't help my case any that I wrote 36 on my paper instead of 32. I see now, it was just a problem of overcomplicating things, and small mistakes that messed me up. Thanks!
