Let P [member of] Q[x] be a monic separable polynomial of degree at least 2 with at least one irrational root.
Let P [member of] Q[x] be a monic separable polynomial of degree at least 4 with at least one irrational root.
In [5, Theorem 1.3], it was shown that if for some monic separable polynomial P and any [[lambda].sub.1], ..., [[lambda].sub.k+l] [member of] Z(P), where g([[lambda].sub.k+1], ..., [[lambda].sub.k+l]) = 0, one has
Hence by the second condition aKv is a (simple) root of the separable polynomial fm(X)- uKv[X].
