2.5 Zeros of Polynomial Functions Use the Rational Zero Theorem to find possible rational zeros. List all possible rational zeros of f(x) =6x 3 -19x 2 +2x+3 Starting with the integers, find one zero of the function using synthetic division, and then factor the remaining polynomial. What are all of the zeros of the function? Use the Rational Zero Theorem to list all of the possible zeros of 4 3 2 ( ) 5 3 2 4 f x x x x x   .
