Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i wanted to know how to do it though but i'll just work backward

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can use the rational zero theorem, where you look at your last term and your first term, so we have \[\frac{ \text{factors of 20} }{ \text{factors of 1} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think that's a pretty easy way to do it :), so list your factors but remember there are positive and negative terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So since it's a polynomial we can treat the first term as P and last term as Q\[\frac{ P }{ Q } = \frac{ \text{factors of 20} }{ \text{factors of 1} }\] so just a nicer way of putting it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Factors of 20 are 1,2,4,5,10,20 so you got that :) now what are the factors of 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 1 and 1, 1 and 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So we have \[\frac{ P }{ Q } = \pm \frac{ 1,2,4,5,10,20 }{ 1 } = \pm 1,2,4,5,10,20 \] :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is c, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yup! This \[\pm \] indicates it has a positive value and negative, and yup that sounds good!
