# 328

By the rational root theorem:

Can only have these rational roots {-1/1,-1/2,-2/2,-2/1,1,1/2,2}

plugging them in we get roots of -2,1/2 and 1

Which means the factorization is of the form

The eclipses from Algol come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong.
