***i'm confused, doesn't this problem need a constant?****

**Steve**, Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 3:14pmsure - it just happens to be zero.

So, factor out the x and see that

g(x)=x(5x^5-3x^2+x-1)

So, now we know 0 is a root, and any other rational roots are ±1/5

So, do a division to see that there are no other rational roots than 0.
