Abstract: In this paper, we investigate if the weight function $ {(1 - {x^2})^{ - 1/2}}R(x)$, where $ R(x)$ is a rational function of order (1,1), admits Chebyshev quadratures. Many positive examples are provided. In particular, we have proved that the answer is affirmative if $ R(x) = 1 + bx$, $ \vert b\vert < 0.27846 \ldots $.
