# Find Quotient and remainder with long division?!?

by using long division or even synthetic, find the remainder and quotient when 2x^4+3x^2 -5x+9 is divided by x+3.

I don't know how to divide with 4th degrees, i tried synthetic division but its not working out. I keep getting a crazy bunch of number.

x + 3)2x^4 + 0x^3 + 3x^2 - 5x + 9(2x^3
........2x^4 + 6x^3
_______________________
.................-6x^3 + 3x^2(-6x^2
.................-6x^3 - 18x^2
______________________
.......................21x^2 - 5x(21x
.......................21x^2 +63x
_____________________
.........................-68x+ 9(-68
..........................-68x - 204
______________________
..............................213

The quotient is 2x^3 - 6x^2 + 21x - 68 and remainder is 213
