So use synthetic division for ALL of the possible roots? If i had say, 12 possible ones, i have to synthetically divide every single one of them?

Possibly not. You might find a root and then be able to factor the quotient.

If the remainder of the synthetic division process is 0, then you have found a factor. The other factor is the quotient of the synthetic division process.
