# 3.(i)  Verify whether the following are zeroes of the polynomial, indicated against it.   (i)    $p(x) = 3x + 1, x = -\frac{1}{3}$

Given polynomial is   $p(x) = 3x + 1$
Now, at  $x = -\frac{1}{3}$   it's value is
$p\left ( -\frac{1}{3} \right )=3\times \left ( -\frac{1}{3} \right )+1 = -1+1=0$
Therefore, yes $x = -\frac{1}{3}$  is a zero of  polynomial  $p(x) = 3x + 1$
