Need some help with using synthetic division to find the function value of this problem:
f(x)=2x^4+4x^3+2x^2+3x+8;find f(2)

hard to line up the spacing with this font format, but here it goes
2│2 4 2 3 8
***
*** 4 04 2
** 2 0 01 10
so f(2) = 10

the last row in the synthetic division algorithm should have been
** 2 0 2 1 10
