    4x^3 +3x^2 + 8x + 15 + 35/x-2 the 35/x-2 is the remainder. You can also say Remainder of 35

    the remainder is 35, and then just like in regular long division we can use the baby remainder and say R35, or we can do it normally and put it over the divisor. try it with 41 / 5

    its a remainder of 1, and so you have 8 and 1/5

    that isnt synthetic division, thats long division, and you use it when the divisor isnt linear
