## Class 10 Question

By Happy Singh · Sep 20, 2020 ·Class 10
Let m and n be roots ;
then,
m+n=-a;---1
and
m×n=b---2

from ---2
we know , negative × negative=positive (b=m×n).
postive × positive =positive (b=m×n).

from ---1
a can be negative ,if and only if both are negative
or either one is negative.

in both we see;
both negative as common.
HENCE BOTH THE ROOTS ARE NEGATIVE

Both zeroes will be negative

Let the roots of equation be m and n
then
m+n= -a
m*n= b
as per question a>0
so m+n< />
and b>0
m*n>0
to satisfy the equations both m and n must be negative
