Q. 3 B5.0( 2 Votes )

Verify Whether the following are roots of the polynomial equations indicated against them.

x2 + 4x + 3 = 0; x = −1, 2

Answer :

x2 + 4x + 3 = 0


let p(x) = x2 + 4x + 3


p(-1) = (-1)2 + 4(-1) + 3


= 1 – 4 + 3


= 4 – 4 = 0


x = -1 is a root of x2 + 4x + 3 = 0


p(x) = x2 + 4x + 3 = 0


p(2) = (2)2 + 4(2) + 3


= 4 + 8 + 3


= 11 + 4 = 15 ≠ 0


x = 2 is not a root of x2 + 4x + 3 = 0.
