Q. 3 E5.0( 3 Votes )

Let us check the following statements—

The two zeros of the polynomial P(x) = x2 – 5x are 0 and 5.

Answer :

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 – 5x


And zero of the polynomial P(x) are 0 and 5


Then,


Zero of the polynomial P(x)


Means P(x) = 0


x2 – 5x = 0


x(x– 5) = 0


x = 0 and (x-5) = 0


x = 0 and x = 5


Zero of polynomial P(x) is 0 and 5


Conclusion.


Hence, the statement is True
