## anonymous one year ago Find the rational solution of x3 – 3x2 + x + 5 = 0. Show your use of the Rational Zero Theorem to receive credit!

I guess that's also knwn as p over q method hm

2. anonymous

I got two solutions which were 1 and 5, but I'm not sure which one is the "Rational solution"

3. Nnesha

$\huge\rm \frac{ p }{ q }=\frac{ Constant }{ leading ~coefficient }$

4. Nnesha

what is the constant term and leading coefficient s what ?

5. Nnesha

find all factors of constant term and of leading coefficient and then you have to apply the synthetic division method to check which one is the solution of that equation

i think i got the answer, thank you!
