For each of the f

Answer :

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
