Question 1(i)
Find the zeroes of the following polynomials by factorization method and verify the relations between the zeroes and the coefficient of the polynomials
(i) 4x23x1

Open in App
Solution

Let f(x) = 4x23x1
= 4x24x+x1 [by splitting the middle term]
= 4x(x1)+1(x1)
= (x1)(4x+1)
So, the value of 4x23x1 is zero when x – 1 = 0 or 4x + 1 = 0 i.e., when x = 1 or x= 14
So, the zeroes of 4x23x1 are 1 and 14

Now to verify the relations between the zeroes and the coefficient:
Sum of zeroes = (ba)=114=34=(3)4
=(1)Coefficient of xCoefficient of x2.

And product of zeroes = (ca)=(1)(14)=(14)
= (1)2constant termCoefficient of x2
Hence, verified.
