fill the blanks with ... $a_{0}$ ... $a_{n}$

Work Step by Step

The Rational Zero Theorem$:$ If $f(x)=a_{n}x^{n}+a_{n-1}x^{n-1}+\cdots+a_{1}x+a_{0}$ has INTEGER coefficients and $\displaystyle \frac{p}{q}$ (where $p$ is reduced to lowest terms) is a rational zero of $f$, then $p$ is a factor of the constant term, $|\underline{a_{0}}|$, and $q$ is a factor of the leading coefficient, $|\underline{a_{n}}|$.
