Remainder theorem to find the remainder when f(x) is divided by the given x-k

f(x)=x^3-4x^2+2x+4; x+2

2 x -4 2 4
1 2 -4 4
1 -2 -2 8

x^3 -2x^2+-2x
-2x^2+4x
6x+4
-2x+4
8x+8

I'm not sure the bottom is right

If you are dividing by x+2, the remainder cannot be 8x+8

The remainder theorem says that the remainder when dividing by (x-a) is f(a)

f(-2) = -8 - 4(4) + 2(-2) + 4 = -24

i'm really not sure how to do this question. (3x+2k)^3+(4x-7)^2 has a remainder of 33 when divided by x-3. find k. i tried to expand the expression, but i don't get a polynomial, so how do i apply the remainder theorem?

Use the remainder theorem to: find the remainder when f(x) is divided by x – c, and determine whether x – c is a factor of f(x). f(x) = x^4 - 8x^3 + 9x^2 - 69x + 24 ; x - 8 Please show all of your work.
