Question

# If one of the zero of the quadratic polynomial $$(k - 1)x^2 + kx +1$$ is -3 then find the value of $$k$$.

Solution

## We know that if $$a$$ is a zero of $$f(x)$$ then $$f(a) =0$$Since $$-3$$ is a zero of the given polynomial $$\therefore (k - 1) (-3)^2 + k(-3) + 1 =0$$$$\Rightarrow 9k - 9 - 3k + 1 = 0 \Rightarrow k =\frac{4}{3}$$Mathematics
