RD Sharma Test: Polynomials - Question 15

If √2 and −√2 are the zeroes of 2x4−3x3−3x2+6x−2, then the other zeroes are

Detailed Solution for RD Sharma Test: Polynomials - Question 15

Since √2 and −√2 are the zeroes of 2x4−3x3−3x2+6x−2, then(x−√2) (x+√2) are the factors of given polynomial i.e., 
(x−√2) (x+√2) = (x2−2) is a factor of given polynomial. 
∴p(x) = 2x4−3x3−3x2+6x−2
⇒ p(x) = (x2−2)(2x2−3x+1)

⇒ p(x) = (x2 - 2) [2x2 - 2x - x + 1]
⇒ p (x) = (x2 - 2) [2x (x -1) - 1 (x - 1)]
⇒ p (x) = (x2 - 2) (x -1) (2x -1)
∴ Other zeroes are x - 1 = 0 and 2x - 1 = 0 ⇒ x = 1 and x = 1/2

If one zero of the polynomial p(x) = (a2+9)x2+45x+6a is reciprocal of the other, then the value of ‘a’ is

Detailed Solution for RD Sharma Test: Polynomials - Question 19

Let the zeroes be k and (1/k)
Given quadratic polynomial is p(x) = (a2 + 9)x2 + 45x + 6a
Recall the sum of zeroes (k + 1/k) = –45/(a2 + 9)
Product of zeroes [k × (1/k)] = 6a/(a2 + 9)
⇒ 6a/(a2 + 9) = 1
⇒ (a2 + 9) = 6a
⇒ a2 – 6a + 9 = 0
⇒ a2 – 2(a)(3) + 32 = 0
⇒ (a – 3)2 = 0
⇒ (a – 3) = 0
∴ a = 3
