I need to divide this polynomial synthetically. I think I did it right, but can someone confirm if my answer is right or wrong?

Polynomial:

x^4 - x^3 + x^2 - x + 2

Divisor: x-2

My answer:

x^3 + x^2 + 3x + 5 + 12 (remainder)

----

x-2

( the x-2 in my answer is meant to go under the remainder )
