#' Internal function used to fit roots of a polynomial made up of the product of
#' bias factors.
#'
#' @param x A number. The variable to solve for.
#' @param y A number. The observed risk ratio.
#' @param n A number. Degree of polynomial in the numerator.
#' @param d A number. Degree of polynomial in the denominator.
#' @return Returns the value of the expression. Used for root solving. At the
#'   function's roots, will return 0.
#' @keywords internal

#' Internal function used to calculate arbitrary bias factors.
#'
#' @param rr1 A number. A risk ratio that is a component of a bias factors
#' @param rr2 A number. The other risk ratio that is a component of a bias

#' @return Returns the value of the expression. Used for calculating bias
#'   factors.
