# Q: 5

Give examples of polynomial p(x), g(x), q(x) and r(x), which satisfy the division algorithm and (i) deg p(x) = deg q(x) (ii) deg q(x) = deg r(x) (iii) deg r(x) = 0

According to the division algorithm, if p(x) and g(x) are two polynomials with g(x) polynomials q(x) and r(x) such that p(x) = g(x) x q(x) + r(x), where r(x) = 0 or degree of r(x) < degree of g(x). (i) Degree of quotient will be equal to degree of dividend when divisor is constant. Let us consider the division of by 3. Here, p(x) = and g(x) = 3 q(x) = and r(x) = 0 Here, degree of p(x) and q(x) is the same which is 2. Checking: p(x) = g(x) x q(x) + r(x) 0, then we can find

Thus, the division algorithm is satisfied. (ii) Let us consider the division of 2x4 + 2x by 2x3, Here, p(x) = 2x4 + 2x and g(x) = 2x3 q(x) = x and r(x) = 2x Clearly, the degree of q(x) and r(x) is the same which is 1. Checking, p(x) = g(x) x q(x) + r(x) 2x4 + 2x = (2x3 ) x x + 2x 2x4 + 2x = 2x4 + 2x Thus, the division algorithm is satisfied. (iii) Degree of remainder will be 0 when remainder obtained on division is a constant. Let us consider the division of 10x3 + 3 by 5x2. Here, p(x) = 10x3 + 3 and g(x) = 5x2 q(x) = 2x and r(x) = 3 Clearly, the degree of r(x) is 0. Checking: p(x) = g(x) x q(x) + r(x) 10x3 + 3 = (5x2 ) x 2x + 3 10x3 + 3 = 10x3 + 3 Thus, the division algorithm is satisfied. Concept insight: In order to answer such type of questions, one should remember the division algorithm. Also, remember the condition on the remainder polynomial r(x). The polynomial r(x) is either 0 or its degree is strictly less than g(x). The answer may not be unique in all the cases because there can be multiple polynomials which satisfies the given conditions.

Q: 1

Verify that the numbers given alongside of the cubic polynomials below are their zeroes. Also verify the relationship between the zeroes and the coefficients in each case:

On comparing the given polynomial with the polynomial ax3 + bx2 + cx + d, we obtain a = 2, b = 1, c = 5, d = 2

Thus, the relationship between the zeroes and the coefficients is verified.

On comparing the given polynomial with the polynomial ax3 + bx2 + cx + d, we obtain a = 1, b = -4, c = 5, d = -2.

Thus, the relationship between the zeroes and the coefficients is verified. Concept insight: The zero of a polynomial is that value of the variable which makes the polynomial 0. Remember that there are three relationships between the zeroes of a cubic polynomial and its coefficients which involve the sum of zeroes, product of all zeroes and the product of zeroes taken two at a time. Q: 2 Find a cubic polynomial with the sum, sum of the product of its zeroes taken two at a time, and the product of its zeroes as 2, -7, -14 respectively.

Answer Let the polynomial be ax3 + bx2 + cx + d and its zeroes be . According to the given information:

If a = k, then b = -2k, c = -7k, d = 14k Thus, the required cubic polynomial is k(x3 - 2x2 - 7x + 14), where k is any real number. The simplest polynomial will be obtained by taking k = 1. Concept insight: A cubic polynomial involves four unknowns and we have three relations involving these unknowns, so the coefficients of the cubic polynomial can be found by assuming the value of one unknown and then finding the other three unknowns from the three relations.

## Q: 3 If the zeroes of the polynomial x3 - 3x2 + x + 1 are a - b, a, a + b, find a and b.

Answer Let p(x) = x3 - 3x2 + x + 1 The zeroes of the polynomial p(x) are given as a - b, a, a + b. Comparing the given polynomial with dx3 + ex2 + fx + g, we can observe that d = 1, e = -3, f = 1, g = 1

## Therefore, the zeroes of p(x) are 1-b, 1, 1+b .

Concept insight: When the polynomial and its zeroes are given then, remember to apply relationships between the zeroes and coefficients . These relations involve the sum of the zeroes, product of zeroes and the product of zeroes taken two at a time.

## Q: 4 If two zeroes of the polynomial are , find other zeroes.

Therefore, x2 - 4x + 1 is a factor of the given polynomial. For finding the remaining zeroes of the given polynomial, we will carry out the division of

Hence, 7 and -5 are also zeroes of the given polynomial. Concept insight: If a is a zero of a polynomial p(x), where degree of p(x) is greater than 1, then (x - a) will be a factor of p(x) that is when p(x) is divided by (x - a), then the remainder obtained will be 0 and the quotient will be a factor of p(x) using division algorithm. Remember that if (x - a) and (x - b) are factors of a polynomial, then (x - a)(x - b) will also be a factor of that polynomial. Q: 5 If the polynomial x4 - 6x3 + 16x2 - 25x + 10 is divided by another polynomial x2 - 2x + k, the remainder comes out to be x + a, find k and a.

Answer By division algorithm, Dividend = Divisor x Quotient + Remainder Divisor x Quotient = Dividend - Remainder

## It will be perfectly divisible by x2 - 2x + k.

10 - a - 8 x 5 + 25 = 0 10 - a - 40 + 25 = 0 -5-a=0 a = -5 Thus, k = 5 and a = -5. Concept insight: When a polynomial is divided by any non-zero polynomial, then it satisfies the division algorithm which is as below: Dividend = Divisor x Quotient + Remainder Divisor x Quotient = Dividend - Remainder So, from this relation, it can be said that the result (Dividend - Remainder) will be completely divisible by the divisor.

## Introduction to Linear Equations in Two Variables

Linear equation in two variable: An equation in the form ax + by + c = 0, where a, b and c are real numbers, and a and b are not both zero (a + b 0), is called a linear equation in two variables x and y. Solution of a linear equation in two variables: Every solution of the equation is a point on the line representing it. Each solution (x, y) of a linear equation in two variables, ax + by + c = 0, corresponds to a point on the line representing the equation, and vice versa. General form of pair of linear equations in two variables: The general form for a pair of linear equations in two variables x and y is a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2x + b2y + c2 = 0, Where a1, b1, c1, a2, b2, c2 are all real numbers and a1 + b1 0, a2 + b2 0. Geometrical representation of pair of linear equations in two variables The geometrical representation of a linear equation in two variables is a straight line. Pair of linear equations in two variables: If we have two linear equations in two variables in a plane, and we draw lines representing the equations, then:

(a) Substitution method: Following are the steps to solve the pair of linear equations by substitution method: a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 (i) and a2x + b2y + c2 = 0 (ii) Step 1: We pick either of the equations and write one variable in terms of the other y = -a1 / b1 x - c1 / b1 (iii) Step 2: Substitute the value of x in equation (i) from equation (iii) obtained in step 1. Step 3: Substituting this value of y in equation (iii) obtained in step 1, we get the values of x and y. (b) Elimination method: Following are the steps to solve the pair of linear equations by elimination method: Step 1: First multiply both the equations by some suitable non-zero constants to make the coefficients of one variable (either x or y) numerically equal. Step 2: Then add or subtract one equation from the other so that one variable gets eliminated. (i) If you get an equation in one variable, go to Step 3. (ii) If in Step 2, we obtain a true statement involving no variable, then the original pair of equations has infinitely many solutions. (iii) If in Step 2, we obtain a false statement involving no variable, then the original pair of equations has no solution, i.e., it is inconsistent. Step 3: Solve the equation in one variable (x or y) so obtained to get its value. Step 4: Substitute this value of x (or y) in either of the original equations to get the value of the other variable. (c) Cross multiplication method: By cross multiplication method, the value of x and y is as follows:
