Multiple Choice Questions
Question 1 If a and b are the zeroes of the polynomial x^{2}-11x +30, Find the value of a^{3} + b^{3}
a.134
b.412
c.256
d.341 Solution
a^{3} + b^{3}= (a+b) (a^{2}+b^{2}-ab)=(a+b) {(a+b)^{2} -3ab}
Now a+b=-(-11)/1=11
ab=30
So a^{3}+b^{3}=11( 121 -90)=341

a. x^{2}-13x+22
b. x^{2}-11x+22
c. x^{2}-13x-22

Comparing this with (x+a)
We get
K=5 and a=-5

s(x) =x+2
b. p(x) =x^{4}+4
s(x)=x^{2}+x+1 Solution
a. r(x)=x^{3}-x^{2} +4x-5 w(x)=14

More Practice Questions
Question 1. If the polynomial f(x) = x^{4} -6x^{3} + 16x^{2} – 25x + 10 is divided by another polynomial x^{2} -2x + k, the remainder comes out to be x + a, find k and a. Answer
Dividend = Divisor X Quotient + Remainder
Dividend - Remainder = Divisor X Quotient
Dividend - Remainder is always divisible by the divisor.
Now, it is given that f(x) when divided by x^{2} -2x + k leaves (x + a) as remainder.
So f(x) -(x+a) is divided by x^{2} -2x + k
Now remainder should be zero
(-10 + 2k)x + (10 - a - 8k + k^{2}) = 0
-10 + 2k = 0 or k=5
Now (10 -a - 8k + k^{2}) = 0
or 10 - a - 8 (5) + 5^{2} = 0
or - a - 5 = 0
a =-5
Question 2. Find all the zeroes of the polynomial x^{4} – 3x^{3 }+ 6x – 4, if two of its zeroes are √2 and -√2 Question 3. If p and q are he zeroes of the quadratic polynomial f(x) = x^{2} – 2x + 3, find a polynomial whose roots are:
p + 2, q + 2
(p-1)/(p+1) , (q-1)/(q+1)
Question 4. For what value of k, -7 is the zero of the polynomial 2x^{2} + 11x + (6k – 3)? Also find the other zero of the polynomial Question 5. What must be added to f(x) = 4x^{4 }+ 2x^{3} – 2x^{2} + x – 1 so that the resulting polynomial is divisible by g(x) = x^{2} + 2x -3? Question 6. Find k so that x^{2} + 2x + k is a factor of 2x^{4} + x^{3} – 14 x^{2} + 5x + 6. Also find all the zeroes of the two polynomials. Question 7. If the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial ax^{2} + bx + c, c ≠ 0 are equal, then
(A) c and a have opposite signs
(B) c and b have opposite signs
(C) c and a have the same sign
(D) c and b have the same sign Answer
Given that, the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial ax^{2} + bx + c , c ≠ 0 are equal
Value of discriminant (D) has to be zero
b^{2}– 4ac = 0
b^{2} = 4ac
Since L.H.S. (b^{2}) can never be negative
R.H.S. also can never be negative.
a and c must have same sign
Question 8. Find the zeroes of 2x^{3} – 11x^{2} + 17x – 6. Question 9. If (x - 2) and [x – ½ ] are the factors of the polynomials qx^{2} + 5x + r prove that q = r Answer
4q+10+r=0 -(1)
q/4 +5/2 +r=0 or q+10+4r=0 -(2)
Subtracting 1 from 2
3q-3r=0
q=r
Question 10. Find k so that the polynomial x^{2} + 2x + k is a factor of polynomial 2x^{4} + x^{3} – 14x^{2} + 5x + 6. Also, find all the zeroes of the two polynomials. Answer
For x^{2} + 2x + k is a factor of polynomial 2x^{4} + x^{3} – 14x^{2} + 5x + 6, it should be able to divide the polynomial without any remainder
Comparing the coefficient of x we get.
21+7k=0 or k=-3
So x^{2} + 2x + k becomes x^{2} + 2x -3 = (x-1)(x+3)
Now
2x^{4} + x^{3} – 14x^{2} + 5x + 6= (x^{2} + 2x -3)(2x^{2}-3x-8+2k)
=(x^{2} + 2x -3)(2x^{2}-3x-2)
=(x-1)(x+3)(x-2)(2x+1)
or x= 1,-3,2,=-1/2
Question 11. On dividing p(x) = x^{3} – 3x^{2} + x + 2 by a polynomial q(x), the quotient and remainder were x – 2 and -2x + 4, respectively. Find g(x). Question 12. a, b, c are zeroes of cubic polynomial x^{3} – 2x^{2 }+ qx – r. If a + b = 0 then show that 2q = r. Question 13. Find the remainder when x^{51} +51 is divided by (x+1). Question 14. a,b and c are zeroes of polynomial x^{3 }+ px^{2} + qx + 2 such that a b + 1 = 0. Find the value of 2p + q + 5. Answer
By cubic polynomial equation, we have
a+b+c=-p
ab+bc+ac=q
abc=-2
Now given ab+1=0 or ab=-1
So abc=-2
(-1)c=-2 or c=2
