Rational Root Theorem
Rational Zero Theorem
A theorem that provides a complete
list of possible rational roots of the polynomial equation a_{n}x^{n} + a_{n}_{–1}x^{n}^{–1} + ··· + a_{2}x^{2} + a_{1}x + a_{0} =
0
where all coefficients are integers.
This list consists of all
possible numbers of the form c/d,
where c and d are integers. c must divide
evenly into the constant term a_{0}. d must
divide evenly into the leading coefficient a_{n}.
