Verify whether the values indicated against the following polynomials are zeroes of the polynomial.
p(x)=ax+b; x= -b/a
After substituting the value for variable in the polynomial if we get 0 then that value is called zero of the polynomial.
It means that if p(x) = 0, then x will be called as the zero of the polynomial.
p(x) = ax + b; x= -b/a
substituting in ax + b
⇒ p() = a() + b
⇒ p() = -b + b
⇒ p() = 0
Yes is zero of polynomial p(x) = ax + b
