1
The Rational Root Theorem The Rational Root Theorem gives us a tool to predict the Values of Rational Roots:

2
List the Possible Rational Roots For the polynomial: All possible values of: All possible Rational Roots of the form p/q:

3
Find a Root That Works For the polynomial: Substitute each of our possible rational roots into f(x). If a value, a, is a root, then f(a) = 0. (Roots are solutions to an equation set equal to zero!)

4
Find the Other Roots

5
Find the Other Roots (con’t) The resulting polynomial is a quadratic, but it doesn’t have real factors. Solve the quadratic set equal to zero by either using the quadratic formula, or by isolating the x and taking the square root of both sides.

6
Find the Other Roots (con’t) The solutions to the quadratic equation: The three complex roots of the polynomial are: For the polynomial:
