I was given the problem to divide [x^5 - (1/3)x^4 +2x - 3] by (2x-3) using synthetic division. im stuck because (2x-3) needs to be in the form of (x-c) any help is greatly appreciated thanks, Jeremiah

$\displaystyle 2x -3 = 2(x-\frac{3}{2}) $
what would happen to the 2 out in front? when i do the synthetic division i come up with x^4 - (11/6)x^3 + (11/4)x^2 - (33/8)x +(131/16) remainder (-489/32) could this be a valid answer? or am i doing something wrong?
$\displaystyle \frac{95}{32} + \frac{21x}{16} + \frac{7x^2}{8} + \frac{7x^3}{12} + \frac{x^4}{2}$ Remainder $\displaystyle \frac{189}{32} $
