use synthetic division to find the respective remainders in terms of m and n

2.The passenger section of a train has width 2x-7, length 2x+3, and height x-2, with all dimensions in metres. Solve a polynomial equation to determine the dimension of the section of the train if the volume is 117m^3.

(2x-7)(2x+3)(x-2) = 117

expand and solve the cubic polynomial for x.
