The question reads:
Use synthetic division to find P(2) for P(x) = x^4  8x^3  8x^2  10x  2
I have no idea how to do this problem. Could someone give me a step by step explanation or link me to somewhere I can find out how?

this page (youtube) not only shows how to do synthetic division, but the last third of the clip gets right to your type of problem.

your synthetic division setup would look like this
2 │ 1 8 8 10 2
see if you can come up with P(2) = 102
