## Precalculus: Concepts Through Functions, A Unit Circle Approach to Trigonometry (3rd Edition)

$\pm \dfrac{1}{3}, \pm \dfrac{2}{3}, \pm 1, \pm 2, \pm 3,\pm 6, \pm 9, \pm 18$
Let us consider that $m$ is a factor of the constant term and $n$ is a factor of the leading coefficient. Then the potential zeros can be expressed by the possible combinations as: $\dfrac{m}{n}$. We see from the given polynomial function that it has a constant term of $18$ and a leading coefficient of $3$. The possible factors $m$ of the constant term and $n$ of the leading coefficient are: $m=\pm 1, \pm 2, \pm 3, \pm 6, \pm 9, \pm 18$ and $n=\pm 1, \pm 3$, Therefore, the possible rational roots of $f(x)$ are: $\dfrac{m}{n}=\pm \dfrac{1}{3}, \pm \dfrac{2}{3}, \pm 1, \pm 2, \pm 3,\pm 6, \pm 9, \pm 18$
