    Rational Zero Test

    a.)Applying the rational zeros test to g(x) produces a list of possible rational zeros. ("possible rational zeros" is the answer to a.)

    b.) Is it possible that g(x) has zeros in the real number system which are not listed in part a?Explain your answer.

    c.) Is it possible that g(x) has zeros in the real number system which are not listed in either part a or part b? Explain your answer.

    Thank you!

    There is no actual "g(x)" or rather it isn't given. I assume it's like a "number." I need help on b and c.

    Without a specific function, I don't see how you're supposed to provide specific answers. Sorry.
