Q. 1 J4.2( 13 Votes )

# Find the errors and correct the following mathematical sentencesSubstitute x = – 3 in(a) x2 + 7x + 12 = (–3)2 + 7 (–3) + 12 = 9 + 4 + 12 = 25

Answer :

If LHS is

x2 + 7x + 12

Then RHS would be

x2 + 7x + 12

Putting x = (-3)

= (–3)2 + 7 (–3) + 12

= 9 + (-21) + 12

= 21-21

= 0

The error is (-21) instead of 4 and end result 0 instead of 25

Hence putting x = (-3) in x2 + 7x + 12 results to 0
