    if f(x)= ax^4 + bx^3 + cx^3 +dx + e then possible rational zeros of f(x) according to ration root theorem are : ±(factors of e)/(factors of a) [note e is not exponent but any constatnt] all permutations and combinations of factors can be a root. try now..

    \( 3x^4 + x^3 – 13x^2 – 2x + 9 \) Using the rational root theorem ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rational_root_theorem ) \(\pm\) Factors of 9 / Factors of 3 In this case, \[ \pm \frac {1,3,9}{1,3} \]
