I have the following polynomial

$$\frac{(ar-1)(ar-2)(ar-3)(ar-4)(ar-5)}{(r-1)(r-2)(r-3)(r-4)(r-5)} = P$$

where [itex]r[/itex] is the variable I'd like to solve for and [itex]P[/itex], [itex]a[/itex] are just real constants.

I was wondering whether or not I could use De Moivre's Theorem here. Is there an easier way I can go about solving for [itex]r[/itex]?
