I actually noticed that

When looking for solutions of polynomials in one variable, the highest order term becomes dominant quite quickly. If all the coefficients are integers, and the highest order coefficient is 1 then any rational solution is an integer, and any integer solution must be a factor of the constant term. In the case of
