QUESTION: 1

### If the graph of a polynomial intersects the x – axis at three points, then the number of zeroes =

Solution:

If the graph of a polynomial intersects the x-axis at three points, then the number of zeroes are 3 because number of zeroes of the polynomial are the number of the coordinates of the points where its graph intersects the x-axis.

QUESTION: 2

### If ‘α’ and ‘β’ are the zeroes of a quadratic polynomial x2+ 5x − 5, then

Solution:  QUESTION: 3

### The sum and product of the zeroes of the polynomial x2−6x+8 are respectively

Solution:

Sum of the zeroes of the polynomial And Product of the zeroes of the polynomial QUESTION: 4

The number of zeros of a cubic polynomial is

Solution:

A polynomial of degree 3 is called a cubic polynomial.

For example, x3−1, 4a− 100a+ a − 6, and m2n + mn2 are all cubic polynomials with atmost 3 zeroes (having degree 3).

Hence, the polynomial having atmost 3 zero is a cubic polynomial.

QUESTION: 5

If x3+x2−2x−3 = (x−2)(x2+ax+b)+5, then

Solution:

Given: x3+x2−2x−3 = (x−2)(x2+ax+b)+5

Dividing L.H.S. by (x−2)  ∴ (x-2)(x2+3x+4)+5 = (x-2)(x2+az+b)+5
Comparing both side, we have a = 3, b = 4

QUESTION: 6

Solution:

Let α,β,γ are the zeroes of the given polynomial. Given: α = 2
Since αβγ = -d/a QUESTION: 9

The maximum number of zeroes that a polynomial of degree 3 can have is

Solution:

The maximum number of zeroes that a polynomial of degree 3 can have is three because the number of zeroes of a polynomical is equals to the degree of that polynomial.

QUESTION: 10

Solution:

If the graph of a cubic polynomial intersects thrice x-axis, then the zeroes of the cubic polynomial are coordinates of x-axis.

QUESTION: 12

If one zero of the quadratic polynomial x2+ 3x + k is 2, then the value of ‘k’ is

Solution:

According to question, p(2) = 0
⇒ (2)2+3×2+k = 0
⇒ 4+6+k = 0
⇒ k = −10

QUESTION: 13

If the sum of the zeroes of the cubic polynomial 4x3−kx2−8x−12 is -3/4  then the value of ‘k’ is

Solution:

Let α,β,γ are the zeroes of the given polynomial. Given: α+β+γ = (-3/4) QUESTION: 14

If α and β are the zeroes of the polynomial 2x2+5x+1, then the value of α+β+αβ is

Solution: QUESTION: 15

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

Solution:

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

QUESTION: 16

If one zero of the polynomial p(x) = (k+4)x2+13x+3k is reciprocal of the other, then the value of ‘k’ is

Solution:

Let one zero of the given polynomial be athen the other zero be ⇒ k + 4 = 3k ⇒ 2k = 4 ⇒ k = 2

QUESTION: 17

Solution: QUESTION: 18

If ‘2’ is the zero of both the polynomials 3x2+mx−14 and 2x3+nx2+x−2, then the value of m – 2n is

Solution:

According to the question, p (2) = 3x2 + mx - 14 = 0
⇒ 3(2)2 + m x 2 - 14 = 0
⇒ 12 + 2m - 14 = 0 ⇒ m = 1
Also p(2) = 2x+ nx2 + x - 2 = 0   QUESTION: 19

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

Solution:

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

Sum of the zeroes = -b/a = 0

⇒ -(p-3)/2 = 0
⇒ - (p-3) = 0×2

⇒ - (p-3) = 0

⇒ p = - 3
