Question

# If $$x=\dfrac{2}{3}$$ and $$x=-3$$ are roots of the quadratic equation $$a{x^2} + 7x + b = 0,$$ find the value of a and b.

Solution

## According to given data,$$\left(x-\cfrac{2}{3}\right)(x+3)=0$$$$\implies x^2+3x-\cfrac{2x}{3}-2=0$$$$\implies x^2+\cfrac{7x}{3}-2=0$$$$\implies 3x^2+7x-6=0$$By comparing with $$ax^2+7x+b=0$$We get, $$b=-6$$ and $$a=3$$MathematicsRS AgarwalStandard IX
