To divide (3x^2 - 8x + 4) by (x - 2) using synthetic division, follow these steps:

- Write down the coefficients of the dividend polynomial, which are 3, -8, and 4.
- Since the divisor is x - 2, write down the root, which is 2.
- Perform synthetic division using the coefficients and the root: a. Bring down the first coefficient, which is 3. b. Multiply the root (2) by 3, and write the result (6) below the next coefficient (-8). Add them to get -2. c. Multiply the root (2) by -2, and write the result (-4) below the next coefficient (4). Add them to get 0.
- The result of synthetic division is the quotient polynomial coefficients: 3x - 2.

Therefore, the quotient of (3x^2 - 8x + 4) divided by (x - 2) using synthetic division is 3x - 2.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
