It seems that more informations are needed. Since if then the roots will be . And hence .
Also, if
then the roots will be . And hence .
Having a bit of trouble with this one. Can anyone help?
Many thanks.
Q.: (i) The roots of the equation are & . Show that . (ii) The roots of are & . Find the value of p & the value of q.
Attempt: (i) a = 2, b = 6, c = 3
=> => -3
=>
Sum of roots: => => => => 9 - 3 => 6
(ii) a = 2, b = p, c = q
Sum of roots: => => => => => => =>
Product of roots: => => => => => => => =>
(sum of roots)x + (product of roots) => => ...
Ans.: (From text book): p = 18, q = 39
