Finding Zeros of Polynomial Equations: Rational Root Theorem

ALGEBR-LRFZ4W

Using the rational root theorem, list all possible roots of the polynomial equation:

$$2x^3 + 11x^2 + 10x - 8 = 0$$

A

$$x = \pm 1, \pm 2, \pm 4, \pm 8$$

B

$$x = \pm 1, \pm 2, \pm 4, \pm 8, \pm {1 \over 2}$$

C

$$x = \pm 1, \pm {1 \over 2}, \pm {1 \over 4}, \pm {1 \over 8}$$

D

$$x = \pm 1, \pm {1 \over 2}, \pm {1 \over 4}, \pm {1 \over 8}, \pm 2$$
