Therefore, the zero of the polynomial is 0


Q.12. Find the zeroes of the polynomial : p(x) = (x – 2)2 – ( x + 2)2

We know that,
Zero of the polynomial p(x) = 0
Hence, we get,
⇒ (x–2)− (x + 2)2 = 0
Expanding using the identity, a2 – b2 = (a – b) (a + b)
⇒ (x – 2 + x + 2) (x – 2 –x – 2) = 0
⇒ 2x ( – 4) = 0
⇒ – 8 x = 0
Therefore, the zero of the polynomial = 0


Q.13. By actual division, find the quotient and the remainder when the first polynomial is divided by the second polynomial : x4 + 1; x –1

Hence, from the above long division method, we get, Quotient = x3 + x2 + x + 1
Remainder = 2.


Q.14. By Remainder Theorem find the remainder, when p(x) is divided by g(x), where
(i) p(x) = x3 – 2x2 – 4 x – 1, g(x) = x + 1

Let g(x) = x + 1
x + 1 = 0
x = –1
p(x) = x3 – 2x2 – 4x – 1
p(–1) = (–1)3 – 2(– 1)2 – 4(–1) – 1
= –1 – 2 × 1 + 4 – 1
= – 4 – 4 = 0
∴ Remainder = 0.

(ii) p(x) = x3 – 3x2 + 4 x + 50, g(x) = x – 3

p(x) = x3 – 3x2 + 4x + 50, g(x) = x – 3
Let g(x) = x – 3
x – 3 = 0
x = 3
p(3) = 33 – 3(32) + 4(3) + 50
= 27 – 27 + 12 + 50
= 62
∴ Remainder = 62.

(iii) p(x) = 4x3 – 12x2 + 14x – 3, g (x) = 2x – 1

Let us denote the given polynomials as
p(x) = 4x- 12x3 - 12x2 + 14x - 3,
g(x) = 2x - 1
⇒ g(x) = NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9
We have to find the remainder when f(x) is divided by g(x).
By the remainder theorem, when f(x) is divided by g(x) the remainder is
NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9
= 1/2 - 3 + 7 - 3
= 3/2
Now we will calculate the remainder by actual division
NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9
So the remainder by actual division is 3/2 .

(iv) p(x) = x3 – 6x+ 2x – 4, g(x) = 1 – 3/2 x

Given, p(x) = x– 6x2 + 2x – 4 and g(x) = 1 - 3/2x
Here, zero of g(x) is 2/3.
When we divide p(x) by g(x) using remainder theorem, we get the remainder p (2/3).
NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9
Hence, remainder is -136/27

Q.15. Check whether p(x) is a multiple of g(x) or not:
(i) p(x) = x3 – 5x2 + 4 x – 3, g(x) = x – 2

According to the question, g(x) = x – 2,
Then, zero of g(x), g(x) = 0
x – 2 = 0
x = 2
Therefore, zero of g(x) = 2
So, substituting the value of x in p(x), we get, p(2) =(2)3 – 5(2)2 + 4(2) – 3
= 8 – 20 + 8 – 3
= – 7 ≠ 0
Hence, p(x) is not the multiple of g(x) since the remainder ≠ 0.

(ii) p(x) = 2x3 – 11x2 – 4 x + 5,    g (x) = 2x + 1

According to the question, g(x)= 2𝑥 + 1
Then, zero of g(x), g(x) = 0
2x + 1 = 0
2x = – 1
x = –1/2
Therefore, zero of g(x) = – 1/2
So, substituting the value of x in p(x), we get,
p(–1/2) = 2 × ( – 1/2 )3 – 11 × ( – 1/2 )2 – 4 × ( – 1/2) + 5
= – 1/4 - 11/4 + 7
= 16/4
= 4 ≠ 0
Hence, p(x) is not the multiple of g(x) since the remainder ≠ 0.


Q.16. Show that: (i) x + 3 is a factor of 69 + 11x – x2 + x3.

According to the question,
Let p(x) = 69 + 11x − x2 + x3 and
g(x) = x + 3 g(x) = x + 3
zero of g(x) ⇒ g(x) = 0 x + 3 = 0
x = – 3
Therefore, zero of g(x) = – 3
So, substituting the value of x in p(x),
we get, p( – 3) = 69 + 11(– 3) –(–3)2 + (– 3)3
= 69 – 69
= 0
Since, the remainder = zero, We can say that,
g(x) = x + 3 is factor of p(x) = 69 + 11x − x2 + x3

(ii) 2x – 3 is a factor of x + 2x– 9x2 + 12.

Let p(x) = 2x3 - 9x2 + x + 12
We have to show that, 2x - 3 is a factor of p(x).
NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9
= (81 – 81)/4
= 0
Hence, (2x – 3) is a factor of p(x).


Q.17. Determine which of the following polynomials has x – 2 a factor:
(i) 3x2 + 6x – 24

According to the question,
Let p(x) = 3𝑥2 + 6𝑥 − 24 and g(x) = x – 2 g(x) = x – 2
zero of g(x) ⇒ g(x) = 0 x – 2 = 0
x = 2
Therefore, zero of g(x) = 2
So, substituting the value of x in p(x), we get, p(2) = 3(2)2 + 6 (2) – 24
= 12 + 12 – 24
= 0
Since, the remainder = zero, We can say that,
g(x) = x – 2 is factor of p(x) = 3𝑥2 + 6𝑥 − 24

(ii) 4x2 + x – 2

According to the question,
Let p(x) = 4𝑥2 + 𝑥 − 2 and g(x) = x – 2 g(x) = x – 2
zero of g(x) ⇒ g(x) = 0 x – 2 = 0
x = 2
Therefore, zero of g(x) = 2
So, substituting the value of x in p(x), we get, p(2) = 4(2)+ 2−2
= 16 ≠ 0
Since, the remainder = zero, We can say that,
g(x) = x – 2 is factor of p(x) = 4𝑥2 + 𝑥 − 2


Q.18. Show that p – 1 is a factor of p10 – 1 and also of p11 – 1.

Let f(p) = p10 – 1 and g(p) = p11 – 1
Putting p = 1 in f(p), we get
f(1) = 110 − 1 = 1 − 1 = 0
Therefore, by factor theorem, (p – 1) is a factor of (p10 – 1)
Now, putting p = 1 in g(p), we get
g(1) = 111 − 1 = 1 − 1 = 0
Therefore, by factor theorem, (p – 1) is a factor of (p11 – 1)


Q.19. For what value of m is x3 – 2mx2 + 16 divisible by x + 2 ?

According to the question,
Let p(x) = x3 – 2mx2 + 16, and g(x) = x + 2 g(x) = 0
⟹ x + 2 = 0
⟹ x = – 2
Therefore, zero of g(x) = – 2 We know that,
According to factor theorem,
if p(x) is divisible by g(x), then the remainder p(−2) should be zero. So, substituting the value of x in p(x), we get,
p( – 2) = 0
⟹ ( – 2)3 – 2m( – 2)2 + 16 = 0
⟹ 0 – 8 – 8m + 16 = 0
⟹ 8m = 8
⟹ m = 1


Q.20. If x + 2α is a factor of x5 – 4 α2x3 + 2 x + 2α + 3, find α.

According to the question,
Let p(x) = x5 – 4a2x3 + 2x + 2a + 3 and g(x) = x + 2a g(x) = 0
⟹ x + 2a = 0
⟹ x = – 2a
Therefore, zero of g(x) = – 2a We know that,
According to the factor theorem,
If g(x) is a factor of p(x), then p( – 2a) = 0 So, substituting the value of x in p(x), we get,
p ( – 2a) = (– 2a)5 – 4a2(– 2a)3 + 2(– 2a) + 2a + 3 = 0
⟹ – 32a5 + 32a5 – 2a + 3 = 0
⟹ – 2a = – 3
⟹ a = 3/2


Q.21. Find the value of m so that 2x – 1 be a factor of 8x4 + 4x3 – 16x2 + 10x + m.

Let p(x) = 8x4 + 4x3 – 16x2 + 10x + m
Since, 2x - 1 is a factor of p(x), then put p(1/2) = 0
NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9
⇒ 1 + 1 + m = 0
∴ m = – 2
Hence, the value of m is – 2.


Q.22. If x + 1 is a factor of ax3 + x2 – 2 x + 4 a – 9, find the value of a.

Let p(x) = ax3 + x2 – 2x + 4a – 9
Since, x + 1 is a factor of p(x), then put p(– 1) = 0
∴ a(-1)3 + (-1)2 - 2(-1) + 4a - 9 = 0
⇒ -a + 1 + 2 + 4a - 9 = 0
⇒ 3a - 6 = 0
⇒ 3a = 6
⇒ a = 6/3 = 2
Hence, the value of a is 2.


Q.23. Factorise:

(i) x2 + 9 x + 18

x2 + 9x + 18 = x2 + 3x + 6x + 18
= x(x + 3) + 6(x + 3)
= (x + 3)(x + 6)

(ii) 6x2 + 7 x – 3

6x2 + 7x − 3 = 6x2 + 9x − 2x − 3
= 3x(2x + 3) − 1(2x+3)
= (3x − 1)(2x + 3)

(iii) 2x2 – 7 x – 15

2x− 7x − 15 = 2x− 10x + 3x − 15
= 2x(x − 5) + 3(x − 5)
= (x − 5)(2x + 3)

= 2x(x2 + x − 6) − 5(x2 + x - 6)
= (x2 + x−6)(2x − 5)
= (x2 + 3x − 2x − 6)(2x − 5)
= [x(x + 3) − 2(x + 3)](2x − 5)
= (x + 3)(x − 2)(2x − 5)

(ii) x3 – 6x2 + 11x – 6

Let p(x) = x3 - 6x2 + 11x - 6
By trial, we find that
p(1) = (1)3 - 6(1)+ 11(1) - 6 = 0
∴ By converse of factor theorem, (x - 1) is a factor of p(x).
Now, x3 - 6x2 + 11x - 6
= x2 (x - 1)- 5x (x - 1) + 6 (x - 1)
= (x - 1) (x2 - 5x + 6)
= (x - 1) {x2 - 2x - 3x + 6}
= (x - 1) {x(x - 2)-3 (x - 2)}
= (x - 1)(x - 2)(x - 3)

(iii) x3 + x2 – 4x – 4

Let x + 1 = 0
∴ x = -1
On substituting value of x in the expression
∴ f(-1) = (-1)3 + (-1)2 - 4(-1) -4 = 0
Clearly x + 1 is a factor of
f(x) = x3 + x2 - 4x - 4
∴ f(x) = (x + 1) (x2 - 4)   ...(By actual division)
= (x + 1) (x - 2) (x + 2)

(iv) 3x3 – x2 – 3x + 1

Let f(x) = 3x3 - x- 3x + 1 be the given polynomial.
Now, putting  x = 1, we get
f(1) = 3(1)3 - (1)2 - 3(1) + 1
= 3 - 1 - 3 + 1 = 0
Therefore, (x-1) is a factor of polynomial f(x).
Now,
f(x) = 3x2(x-1) + 2x(x-1) - 1(x - 1)
= (x - 1){3x2 + 2x - 1}
= (x - 1){3x+ 2x - 1}
= (x - 1)(x + 1)(3x - 1)
Hence (x - 1), (x + 1) and (3x - 1 )are the factors of polynomial f(x).

= (√2a + 2b − 3c)(2a2 + 4b2 + 9c2 − 2√2ab + 6bc + 3√2ac)


Q.37. Without actually calculating the cubes, find the value of :

(i) NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9

Let
NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9
We know that a3 + b3 + c3 = 3abc when a + b + c = 0
NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 | Mathematics (Maths) Class 9
= - 5/12

(ii) (0.2)3 – (0.3)3 + (0.1)3

Given,
0.23 − 0.33 + 0.13

= (0.1 × 2)3 − (0.1 × 3)3 + (0.1 × 1)3
= 0.13(2− 33 + 13)
= 0.13(−18) = −0.018


Q.38. Without finding the cubes, factorise
(x – 2y)3 + (2y – 3z)3 + (3z – x)
3

We know that, a3 + b3 + c3 − 3abc = (a + b + c) (a+ b+ c2 − ab − bc − ca)
Also, if a + b + c = 0,
then a3 + b3 + c3 = 3abc .....condition(1)
Here, we see that a + b + c = (x − 2y) + (2y − 3z) + (3z − x) = 0 

∴ Using condition (1), we get
⇒ (x − 2y)3 + (2y − 3z)3 + (3 z − x)3
= 3(x − 2y) (2y − 3z) (3z − x)


Q.39. Find the value of
(i) x3 + y– 12xy + 64, when x + y = – 4

We know that, a3 + b3 + c= (a + b + c) (a+ b+ c2 − ab − bc − ca) + 3abc
If a + b + c = 0, then a3 + b3 + c3 = 3abc
Now, given x3  + y3 −12xy + 64 and
x + y = −4
=> x + y + 4 = 0
Here, a = x, b = y,  c = 4 and a + b + c = x + y + 4 = 0
Therefore x3 + y3 + 64 = 3xy(4)
= 12xyz
Now, x3 + y3 + 64 − 12xyz = 12xyz − 12xyz = 0

(ii) x3 – 8y3 – 36xy – 216, when x = 2y + 6

x− 8y− 36xy − 216
= x3 + (−2y)3 + (−6)3 − 3(x)(−2y)(−6)
= (x−2y−6)(x2 + 4y+ 36 + 2xy − 12y + 6x)
= 0 × (x+ 4y2 + 36 + 2xy − 12y + 6x) = 0


Q.40. Give possible expressions for the length and breadth of the rectangle whose area is given by 4a2 + 4a –3.

Given

Area = 4a+ 4a − 3.

We know that

Area of rectangle = length × breadth 

So, to find the possible expressions for the length and breadth we have to factorise the given expression.
Using the method of splitting the middle term, 

4a + 4a−3

= 4a2 + 6a − 2a − 3

= 2a(2a+3)−1(2a+3)

= (2a−1)(2a+3)
∴ length × breadth =(2a−1)(2a+3)
Hence, the possible expressions for the length and breadth of the rectangle are :
length = (2a−1) and breadth =(2a+3) or, length = (2a + 3) and breadth = (2a − 1).

FAQs on NCERT Exemplar Solutions: Polynomials - 1 - Mathematics (Maths) Class 9

1. What are polynomials?
Ans. Polynomials are algebraic expressions consisting of variables, coefficients, and exponents. They involve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents.
2. How do you classify polynomials based on the number of terms?
Ans. Polynomials can be classified as monomials (one term), binomials (two terms), trinomials (three terms), or polynomials with more than three terms.
3. What is the degree of a polynomial?
Ans. The degree of a polynomial is the highest power of the variable in the expression. It helps determine the complexity and behavior of the polynomial.
4. How do you add and subtract polynomials?
Ans. To add or subtract polynomials, you combine like terms. Like terms have the same variable and exponent combination. Simply add or subtract the coefficients of these like terms while keeping the variable and exponent unchanged.
5. How do you multiply polynomials?
Ans. To multiply polynomials, you use the distributive property. Distribute each term of one polynomial to every term of the other polynomial, then combine like terms. Repeat this process until all terms have been multiplied and added together.
