Use long division to divide. Write a summary statement in polynomial form.

\(\frac{x^4-2x^3+3x^2-4x+6}{x^2+2x-1}\)

Well, I tried it and got an answer, but when I expanded the answer, it wasn't the original equation.

I got (x^{2}+2x-1)(x^{2}-4x+10)-28x+4.

I don't know what I did wrong though so that's what I was hoping you could help with. (That answer is in polynomial form, with -28x+4 being my remainder.)
