i don't know about rational root theorem but Descartes’ Rule of Signs is very simple. you take a polynomial, and see number of sign variation in the equation. then that many positive real roots will be there. eg: x^3-x^2+x-3=0 sign change like + - + - there are three changes, so there are 3 positive roots. next you replace x by -x(x-----> -x) then for that equation number of change in sign results the number of negative roots. so in the given eg: replace x by -x -x^3-x^2-x-3=0 so sign change is like - - - - that is no change => no negative roots. so this way we can find no. of positive and negative real roots and remaining are complex.
