    Factoring after synthetic division (please help)

    how do you factor after doing synthetic division when you answer has a remainder?

    the beginning equation was divide x^3+18x^2+95x+150 by x+10 using synthetic division then factor

    here is my answer:

    x^2+8x-85+(-700/x-10)

    your synthetic division must have a mistake ... the remainder when dividing the given cubic polynomial by (x+10) is 0.
