Problem A. 687. (January 2017)

A. 687. Let \(\displaystyle f(x)\) and \(\displaystyle g(x)\) be nonzero polynomials such that the degree of \(\displaystyle f(x)\) is higher than that of \(\displaystyle g(x)\). Suppose that for infinitely many prime numbers \(\displaystyle p\), the polynomial \(\displaystyle pf(x)+g(x)\) also has a rational root. Show that \(\displaystyle f(x)\) has a rational root.
