1. Convert to standard polynomial form:

2. Coefficients:

3. Using synthetic division with the divisor (x - c):

Assuming c = 1,

- Write the coefficients:

- Synthetic division process:

- Bring down the leading coefficient (2).

- Multiply 2 by 1 and add to the next coefficient (-1):

- Multiply 1 by 1 and add to 9:

- Multiply 10 by 1 and add to 0:

- Multiply 10 by 1 and add to 0:

4. The quotients give us the coefficients of the polynomial:

5. Thus, the result of the synthetic division is:
