Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I asked you if you were good at SYNTHWTIC substitution, not substitution in general.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well it says evaluate. You can do it simply by substitution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It says "use synthetic substitution to evaluate", not just "evaluate". When the problem states the method you are to use, that's not just a suggestion!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'd never heard of synthetic substitution before, but it appears to be the same concept (Horner's rule) that is used for efficient evaluation of polynomials.
