    without thinking C has to be the one because it has 5roots and plynomial has high degree 5

    Some roots can be repeated.

    I'm questioning that original equation. Please double-check that you input it correctly.

    I don't know how to teach you synthetic division in this forum. Way too much writing. I know the answer, but we're not allowed just to give a raw end-result answer. So, I'll give you 2 of the zeros which are 3 and -3. That leaves you with the factor x^2 + 16 = 0. You should be able to find the last 2 zeros from that. You can use the quadratic formula.
