Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this applies to the rational root thrm that takes a pool of options from the factors of the last number divided by the factors of the first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the factors of the constant are called p factors of the coefficient of the leading term are q the possible roots are p/q

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need to be able to determine the first and last numbers to begin with :) can you tell me what they are?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also, proper form has the + tags, so that narrows it down to the first 2 options

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok... so the factors of 10 are 1 x 10 or 1 x 10, 2 x 5 or 2 x 5 (called p) the factors of 2 are 1 x 2 or 1 x 2 (called q) so if you use p/q for the roots you will have 1/1, 1/1 1/1 and 1/1, then 10/1, 10/1, 10/1 and 10/1, 1/2, 1/2, 1/2, 1/2 etc... this gives all the possible rational roots
