(iv) 4 u² + 8 u **Solution **

(v) t² - 15 **Solution **

(vi) 3 x² – x - 4 **Solution **

(2) Find the quadratic polynomial each with the given numbers as the sum and product of its zeroes respectively.

(i) 1/4 ,-1 **Solution **

(ii) √2,1/3 **Solution **

(iii) 0, √5 **Solution **

(iv) 1, 1 **Solution **

(v) -1/4, 1/4 **Solution **

(vi) 4, 1 **Solution **

(i) x² – 2 x – 8

Solution:

Find let us find the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial.

x² – 2 x – 8 = 0

(x – 4) ( x + 2) = 0

x – 4 = 0 x + 2 = 0

x = 4 x = - 2

So the values of α = 4 and β = -2

Now we are going to verify the relationship between these zeroes and coefficients

x² – 2 x – 8 = 0

ax² + b x + c = 0

a = 1 b = -2 c = -8

Sum of zeroes α + β = -b/a

4 + (-2) = -(-2)/1

2 = 2

Product of zeroes α β = c/a

4(-2) = -8/1

-8 = -8

(ii) 4 s² – 4 s + 1

**Solution:**

Find let us find the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial.

4 s² – 4 s + 1

(2 s – 1) ( 2 s - 1) = 0

2 s – 1 = 0

2 s = 1

s =1/2 s = 1/2

So the values of α = 1/2 and β = 1/2

Now we are going to verify the relationship between these zeroes and coefficients

4 s² – 4 s + 1 = 0

ax² + b x + c = 0

a = 4 b = -4 c = 1

Sum of zeroes α + β = -b/a

(1/2) + (1/2) = -(-4)/4

2/2 = 1

1 = 1

Product of zeroes α β = c/a

(1/2)(1/2) = 1/4

1/4 = 1/4
