# If then show that A is a root of the polynomial f(x) = x3 – 6x2 + 7x + 2.

Given: and f(x) = x3 – 6x2 + 7x + 2

To find the value of f(A)

We will substitute x = A in the given equation we get

f(A) = A3 – 6A2 + 7A + 2I……………..(i)

Here I is identity matrix

Now, we will find the matrix for A2, we get  [as cij = ai1b1j + ai2b2j + … + ainbnj]  Now, we will find the matrix for A3, we get    So, Substitute corresponding values from eqn(i) and (ii) in equation f(A) = A3 – 6A2 + 7A + 2I, we get    [as rij = aij + bij + cij], Hence the A is the root of the given polynomial.
