Dear Forum I tried to do this word problem using long division but I am still having major issues with the following:

12. A cubic model of the yearly worldwide carbon emissions is W=-0.051x3 + 2.93x2 + 74.6x + 1589whereWis the weight of the emissions in millions of tons andxis the number of years since 1950. Use synthetic division to evaluate the model for the year 1960.

any help would be appreciated, Synthetic Division is not my strong point
