The Rational Zero Theorem (part 1 of 2)
Yay Math In Studio is poppin' with an introduction to The Rational Zero Theorem. Back in the DAY-DAY, when people were solving polynomial functions and equations, they didn't have fancy graphing calculators. So they needed a way to determine what could POSSIBLY be the solutions. So, The Rational Zero Theorem was born. All it is: divide all the factors of the constant by all the factors of the leading coefficient. Check out how it's done here, then we solve a polynomial. You GOT this. YAY MATH!
