Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0using the rational root theorem or p/q, you find that for 2,2,4 values for x you get zero. the rational root theorem is done by finding all that factors of 16/1 and inputing the factors back to the equation. the factors that gives you zero are the numbers that solve the problem.
