Well to start with you know that \[4x^2 \times (x-2) = 4x^3-8x^2\] so just like you would do long division with numbers you can also do it with variables like this. so \[ 4x^3-15x^2 -\bigg[4x^3-8x^2 \bigg]=-7x^2\] you drop the -31x like long division to get \[-7x^2 -31x\] and then divide this by (x-2) again \[-7x\times (x-2) = -7x^2 +14x\] and so on
sorry the \[-15x^2 \] should be positive 15
so \[4x^3+15x^2 -\bigg[4x^3-8x^2 \bigg]=23x^2\] \[23x\times (x-2) = 23x^2-46x\] \[23x^2-31x -\bigg[23x^2-46x\bigg]=+15x\] \[15\times(x-2)=15x-30\] \[+15x-30 -\bigg[15x-30 \bigg]=0\] so \[4x^3+15x^2-31x-30 \to (x-2)(4x^2+23x+15)\] and you can factor the rest... hopefully
Explaining how to do long division or synthetic division is a real pain on open study, I would suggest you take the time outside of this to study it from a book with examples. Or go online and search for a youtube video. It isn't hard.
thank you
