[ap-calculus] Rational Zero Theorem Test

Good Afternoon everyone,

Thank you for your feedback on the greatest integer function. I have another question about how far the AB test may go for certain questions. Would they ever have a function whose highest power is greater than 2 where students would have to use the Rational Zero Theorem and list all of the root candidates for say finding zeros or vertical asymptotes? Thanks.
