# The zeroes of the polynomial p (x) = 2x^{2} + 5x - 3 are

A.

B.

C.

D.

Answer :

We have,

p (x) = 2x^{2} + 5x - 3

So, zero of the given polynomial can be calculated as follows:

2x^{2} + 5x – 3 = 0

2x^{2} + 6x – x – 3 = 0

2x (x + 3) – 1 (x + 3) = 0

(2x – 1) (x + 3) = 0

Now, (2x – 1) = 0

2x = 1

Also, (x + 3) = 0

x = -3

Hence, zeros of the given polynomial are and – 3

∴ Option B is correct
