T HE R ATIONAL Z ERO T HEOREM : If f(x) = a n x n + a n-1 x n-1 + a n-2 x n-2 + … + a 1 x 1 + a 0 has integer coefficients, then every rational zero of f(x) has the following form:

F IND ALL RATIONAL ROOTS : 1. List all possible rational roots: 2. Use calculator to decide which roots to test. (Correct if remainder = 0) 3. Use synthetic division to find the unknown factor 4. Repeat step 2 with this new factor until you have a quadratic. 5. Factor the quadratic or use the quadratic formula. 6. Set unsolved factors to zero and solve

E XAMPLE 6 Some ice sculptures are made by filling a mold with water and then freezing it. You are making such an ice sculpture for a school dance. It is to be shaped like a pyramid with a height that is 1 foot greater than the length of each side of its square base. The volume of the ice sculpture is 4 cubic feet. What are the dimensions of the mold?
