find the quotient using synthetic division answer in polynomial form

Let me take a crack at this.

First, bring the one down.

Then, -3*1=-3, so it goes underneath the -13.

Add, -13+(-3)=-16

So, -3*-16=48

Finally, -48+48=0

x-16, (A). I don't know if I'm correct, though.

Correct, tertre....!!!

We wil have

1 -16 remaining

Which translates to 1x - 16 = x - 16
