# Find the zeroes of the polynomial in each of the following: (i) p(x) = x - 4 (ii) g(x) = 3 - 6x (iii) q(x) = 2x -7 (iv) h(y) = 2y

Solution

(i) p(x) = x – 4

Zero of the polynomial p(x) ⇒ p(x) = 0

P(x) = 0

⇒ x – 4= 0

⇒ x = 4

Thus, the zero of the given polynomial is 4.

(ii) g(x) = 3 – 6x

Zero of the polynomial g(x) ⇒ g(x) = 0

g(x) = 0

⇒3 – 6x = 0

⇒ x = 3/6 = ½

Thus, the zero of the given polynomial is ½

(iii) q(x) = 2x –7

Zero of the polynomial q(x) ⇒ q(x) = 0

q(x) = 0

⇒2x – 7 = 0

⇒ x = 7/2

Thus, the zero of the given polynomial is 7/2

(iv) h(y) = 2y

Zero of the polynomial h(y) ⇒ h(y) = 0

h(y) = 0

⇒2y =0

⇒ y = 0

Thus, the zero of the given polynomial is 0
