Spanish term or phrase: raíces enteras y racionales
Se trata de un programa de la materia Albebra y Calculo Numérico. Cuando menciona sus temas uno es "raíces enteras y racionales". Cómo puedo traducir raices enteras? Es correcto: whole and rational roots?

thanks!

agree  MPGS: 'integer' not 'integral' :)

agree  pclews: Looks like both "integer root" and "integral root" are used, but "integer root" is about 50% more popular. And the concept does refer to integers (see http://www.themathpage.com/aprecalc/factor-theorem.htm)
