 Question 106688: i am stumped as to how to solve this problem. using the rational zero theorem to find the possible zeros of: p(x)= 2x^3-5x^2+2x-9. thank you so much!!Answer by stanbon(57219)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!using the rational zero theorem to find the possible zeros of: p(x)= 2x^3-5x^2+2x-9 ---------------- Rational zeroes must have the form a/b where: a is a divisor of 2 and b is a divisor of -9 -------------------------------------- But: The easiest way to do these is to graph with a graphing calculator, then use synthetic division. ---------------- ------------ Rational root at x = 2.7357315... ----------- That is a messy root. Are you sure you posted your problem correctly? Cheers, Stan H.
