    c^5-3 c^4+8 c^3+10 c^2+3 c-12 is the answer!

    \[-12 + 3 c + 10 c^2 + 8 c^3 - 3 c^4 + c^5\]

    now look for all the terms of degree 4. there are \[2c^4\] and \[-5c^4\] and \[2c^4-5c^4=-3c^4\]

    ( 2c^4-2c^3 +3c^2+13c -5)+ (c^5 +10c^3+6c^2 -3c +2)+ ( -5c^4 +c^2 -7c -9) ------------------------------- c^5 -3c^4 +8c^3 +10c^2 +3c -12

    now on to degree 3 \[-2c^3+10c^3=8c^3\]

    \( 2c^4-2c^3 +3c^2+13c -5\) \(c^5\) \( +10c^3+6c^2 -3c +2\) \( -5c^4\) \( +c^2 -7c -9\) ------------------------------- \(c^5 -3c^4 +8c^3 +10c^2 +3c -12\)
