Remember that  if we divide by x + a, we are dividing by "-a" in the synthetic division process

 

So.....  in  x + 3....."a" = 3....so  we are dividing by  " - 3"

 

So we have

 

-3   [   7      15       -12

                 -21        18

        ______________

         7      - 6          6

 

The remainder is 6
