# Thread: Synthetic division on ti-nspire cas

1. ## Synthetic division on ti-nspire cas

Im trying to do synthetic division on the calc and as per the calc notes i have to type "syndiv" and the function to get results.

I type as is indicated, which is,

Syndiv (6,-16,17-6),-2)

And im not getting the right ans. what am i doing wrong?

The actual problem is, (6x3-16x2​+17x-6)/(x-2)

Yes, but it still doesnt give me the correct answer.

Very odd, when i do syndiv (3x3+7x2-x+26)/(x-3) i get the correct ans, but when i do syndiv (6x3+7x2-x+26)/(x-3) i dont get the correct ans....any clue?
