    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)

    I believe your last digit should be 2 instead of -2.
