Rational Root and Complex Conjugates Theorem

Rational Root Theorem

• Used to find possible rational roots (solutions) to a polynomial

• Possible Roots : P/Q

• Where P represents the factors of the constant of the polynomial and Q represents the factors of the leading coefficient

Complex Conjugates Theorem

• If a + bi is a zero of the polynomial, then a – bi is a zero also.

• Ex. Find the polynomial whose zeros include 3 and 2 – i
