# Q1 (1)   Find the zeroes of the following quadratic polynomials and verify the relationship between               the zeroes and the coefficients.  $x ^2 - 2x -8$

x2 - 2x - 8 = 0

x2 - 4x + 2x - 8 = 0

x(x-4) +2(x-4) = 0

(x+2)(x-4) = 0

The zeroes of the given quadratic polynomial are -2 and 4

$\\\alpha =-2\\ \beta =4$

VERIFICATION

Sum of roots:

$\\\alpha+\beta =-2+4=2$

$\\-\frac{coefficient\ of\ x}{coefficient\ of\ x^{2}}\\ =-\frac{-2}{1}\\ =2\\=\alpha +\beta$

Verified

Product of roots:

$\\\alpha \beta =-2\times 4=-8$

$\\\frac{constant\ term}{coefficient\ of\ x^{2}}\\ =\frac{-8}{1}\\ =-8\\=\alpha \beta$

Verified
