Unformatted text preview: First multiply this equation through by . You'll see that all but the first term are integers, and the first term is . That implies that must be an integer, so s divides evenly into Since r and s have no common factor, it must be that s divides evenly into . Next multiply the equation through by . You'll see that all but the last term are integers, and the last term is . You are finished! Expand on the above comments to write a different proof of the rational roots theorem. (Different in that it will be different than the one we did in class.)...
