Class 10 Maths | 2018 Section C Q14

Zeroes of a polynomial. A standard text book question. However, it is a medium difficulty question because of the computation involved in arriving at the answer. Two zeroes of a polynomial are given and you have to find all the zeroes of the polynomial.

Question 14: Find all zeroes of the polynomial (2x^{4} – 9x^{3} + 5x^{2} + 3x – 1) if two of its zeroes are (2 + √3) and (2 - √3).

Given polynomial is 2x^{4} – 9x^{3} + 5x^{2} + 3x – 1

Two of its zeroes: (2 + √3) and (2 - √3)

Because (2 + √3) and (2 - √3) are two zeros of the poynomial, (x – (2 + √3)) (x – (2 - √3)) is a factor of the given polynomial.

i.e., x^{2} - 2x + √3x - 2x + 4 - 2√3 - √3x + 2√3 - 3 is a factor of the polynomial.

Simplifying the above expression, we get x^{2} - 4x + 1 is a factor of the polynomial.

Because x^{2} - 4x + 1 is a factor of the polynomial, x^{2} – 4x + 1 will divide the polynomial without leaving a reaminder.

Let us do a long division of the polynomial by x^{2} – 4x + 1 and compute the quotient.

__ 2x ^{2} - x - 1 __

x

- x

-x

2x^{4} - 9x^{3} + 5x^{2} + 3x - 1 = (x^{2} - 4x + 1) (2x^{2} - x - 1)

2x^{2} - x - 1 can be factorized as 2x^{2} - 2x + x - 1

2x (x - 1) + 1(x - 1) = (2x + 1) (x - 1)

So, its zero are x = \-\frac{1}{2}) and 1

∴ The zeroes of the polynomial are (2 + √3), (2 - √3), -\\frac{1}{2}) and 1
