  2. Hmm I never heard of ration zero theorem but google says it involves synthetic division and checking for roots that make the equation equal to 0? Well, errm I hate synthetic division since it requires to much guess work >.< but all of the roots you wrote down are wrong according to my calculator.

    3x^4 + 5x^2 - 2 = 0 give imaginary and real roots rational roots theorem factors of (+-)p/q are possible rational zeros of function f where the coefficients of f are integers. how do you go about solving this?

    Still looking at how to solve these... Both are cubic polynomials? 43x^3 + 13x^2 + 18x - 456 = 0 DO I divide first by x-1? 2x(3x+2)^2=312 Honestly: I would graph the equations and find the roots first. I don't see them off hand.
