Use synthetic division and the Remainder Theorem to find the indicated function value.
f(x) = x5  8x4  9x3  6; f(3)
I keep coming up with the answer of 222, but that is not an option... I don't know what I'm doing wrong!!! PLEASE HELPI only have 20 mins left to submit this...
Thanks

I don't understand why you have to use synthetic division and the remainder theorem to compute the value of the function at x=3.
The answer is 2^5 8*16 9*8 6 =174
