To divide (-3x^3 + x^2 - x - 72) by (x - 2), you can use long division. Here are the steps:

- Divide the first term of the dividend (-3x^3) by the first term of the divisor (x). The result is -3x^2.
- Multiply the divisor (x - 2) by the result obtained in step 1 (-3x^2). The result is -3x^3 + 6x^2.
- Subtract the result obtained in step 2 from the dividend (-3x^3 + x^2 - x - 72) to get the new dividend: (x^2 - x - 72).
- Bring down the next term from the new dividend, which is x^2.
- Divide the new dividend (x^2 - x - 72) by the divisor (x - 2) using the same steps as before.
- Repeat the process until you have divided all the terms.

The final result of the division is -3x^2 + 6x + 3, with a remainder of 6x - 69.
