    long division polynomial

    Divide 6(x)^4 - 20(x)^3 + 50(x)^2 + 30x - 2 by x^2 - 5x.


    Is the answer 6x2 + 10x + 100

    and the remainder: 530x - 2?

    these numbers look weird, what did i do wrong?

    Weird? How so?

    Your answer is fine. Why do you assume that you are in error?
