when 10x^3 +mx^2 -x +10 is divided by 5x-3, the quotient is 2x^2 +nx - 2 and the remainder is 4. find the values of m and n

What expressions did you get for the quotient and the remainder when you did the long division? When you set your expressions equal to the given expression and value, where did this lead?

Thank you.
