## poshbagel 2 years ago R(x) = 2x^5 + 5x^3 + 6x^2 − 6 List all possible rational zeros given by the Rational Zeros Theorem (but don't check to see which actually are zeros). (Enter your answers as a comma-separated list.)

1. poshbagel

came up with +- 6 3 2 1 and its wrong =(

The 8 you have are right. However, you're missing two others that aren't integers.

*4 others (with + and -)

4. poshbagel

yes hold on let me give you all my numbers

5. poshbagel

-6,-3,-2,-1,1,2,-3,6 ?

6. poshbagel

\[R(x)=2x^5+5x^3+6x^2-6\]

Yeah, that's what I said was correct. But there are 4 non-integers (fractions) that you're missing.

8. poshbagel

Am I missing a fraction 1/2?

9. poshbagel

not sure what to do next

Yeah, that's one of the two fractions.

11. poshbagel

okay help me with the other fraction please haha

Yeah, sure. Can you first tell me how you got these answers? Because I have the answer, but my method may be different.

13. poshbagel

3/2?

and yes. That's it.

15. poshbagel

yeeeeeeeeeeeS

+- for both, and that's all the answers, I'm pretty sure. Good job.

17. poshbagel

thankyou
