Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If guess that one of the roots is rational, the possible roots from the rational root theorem are ±1 , ±3 , ±9. If I try x = 9, I find that f(9) = 0. x^3  12x^2 + 28x  9 = (x9)(x^2  3x + 1) Using the quadratic formula, the other 2 solutions are (3 ± sqrt(94))/2 = (3 ± sqrt(5))/2 Solutions to f(x) = 0 : 9 , (3 + sqrt(5))/2 , (3  sqrt(5))/2
