Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1by rational root theorem there might be roots of +1 , /+ 3 try seeing if f(1) , f(1) , f(3) or f(3) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1multiply coefficient of x^3 and x^0  in this case its 3 and 1  the roots could be factors of 3 ( including 1)
