5. If one zero of the quadratic polynomial (k² + k)x² + 68x + 6k is reciprocal of the other, find k. [Answer: 5]

##### What do you understand by value of p(x) at k?

If p(x) is a polynomial in x, and if k is any real number, then the value obtained by replacing x by k in p(x), is called the value of p(x) at x = k, and is denoted by p(k).

##### What is zero of a polynomial?

A real number k is said to be a zero of a polynomial p(x), if p(k) = 0.

##### How do we find the zeros of a quadratic polynomial graphically?

The zeroes of a quadratic polynomial ax² + bx + c, a ≠ 0, are precisely the x-coordinates of the points where the parabola representing y = ax² + bx + c intersects the x-axis.

##### How many zeros are there of a quadratic polynomial?

A polynomial of degree 2 has atmost two zeroes.
