Q. 1 B3.8( 10 Votes )

# For each of the following, find a quadratic polynomial whose sum and product respectively of the zeroes are as given. Also, find the zeroes of these polynomials by factorization. Sum of the zeroes = 21/8

Product of the zeroes = 5/16

P(x) = x2 - (sum of the zeroes) + (product of the zeroes)

= x2 - 21x/8 + 5/16

= 16x2 - 42x + 5

By splitting the middle term

16x2 - 42x + 5 = 0

16x2 - (2x + 40x) + 5 = 0

16x2 - 2x - 40x + 5 = 0

2x (8x - 1) - 5(8x - 1) = 0

(8x - 1)(2x - 5) = 0

x = 1/8, 5/2
