    sure if you consider the polynomial \[x^3-2\] the rational roots can only be \[\pm 1,\pm2\] and by inspection neither of those work.

    i guess if you want a real proof you have to know that the root exists, but that is clear because this is a continuous function that takes on both positive and negative values
