the rational roots test might be applicable

\[\pm\frac{factors.of.15}{factors.of.1}\] since the last term is 15 and the first term is 1

the actual values that will zero this out can get complicated; the question is just asking what possible values there could be to test
amistre64
  • amistre64
we know that whatever the actual zeros are, they have to multiply to get 15 and 1

so wouldn't it be ± 1, ± 3, ± 5, ± 15?

  • amistre64
so, 15 factors into 1,3,5,15 and 1 factors into 1 which is trivial \[\pm{1,3,5,15}\]are our possible zeros to test out if need be

thats correct
