Q. 3 D5.0( 3 Votes )

# Let us check the following statements—The two zeros of the polynomial P(x) = x2 – 9 are 3 and –3.

Formula used/Theory.

There is some value of ‘x’ for which the P(x) comes to 0, that value of ‘x’ is said to be zero of polynomial P(x)

We have,

P(x) = x2 – 9

And zero of the polynomial P(x) are 3 and -3

Then,

Zero of the polynomial P(x)

Means P(x) = 0

x2 – 9 = 0

x2 – (3)2 = 0

a2 – b2 = (a+b)(a-b)

(x – 3)(x+3) = 0

x – 3 = 0 and x+3 = 0

x = 3 and x = -3

Zero of polynomial P(x) is 3 and -3

Conclusion.

Hence, the statement is True
