evaluate each function at the given value:
f(n)=-n^6+31n^4+26n^3+20n^2+-33n-20
when n=6

I was thinking that I should do synthetic division, but I've tried it a few times and I can't get it to work out correctly.

• Functions & Trig -

A) put the value 6 into the equation everywhere you see an n

B) calculate

f(6) = 6^6 + 31(6)^4 + 26(6)^3 + 20(6)^2 + (-33)(6) - 20
