### 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 at most two zeroes.

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

### What are the main topics in exercise 2.2 class 10th Maths to learn?

In exercise 2.2 (chapter 2 Polynomials) of class 10th mathematics students will learn the following things:

1. How to find zeroes of quadratic polynomial.
2. Relationship between zeroes and coefficients of quadratic polynomial.
3. Relationship between zeroes and coefficients of cubic polynomial.
4. How to find a quadratic polynomial, the sum and product of whose zeroes are given.

### How many questions are there in exercise 2.2 of class 10th Mathematics?

There are in all 2 questions (each question have 6 parts) in exercise 2.2 of class 10th mathematics chapter 2 (Polynomials) and both the questions are important.

### How many examples are there in exercise 2.2 of 10th Maths?

4 examples (example 2, 3, 4, 5) are based on exercise 2.2 (chapter 2 Polynomials) of class 10th mathematics. All examples are of different type and example 2, 3, 4 are important. If we compare examples with questions of exercise 2.2 then we can observe that example 2, 3 and question 1 are of same type. Example 4 and question 2 are of same type.

### Is exercise 2.2 of 10th Maths easy?

Exercise 2.2 (chapter 2 Polynomials) of class 10th mathematics is not that easy and not that difficult it somewhere in middle of easy and difficult. But difficulty level of anything varies from student to student. So, Exercise 2.2 (chapter 2 Polynomials) of class 10th mathematics is easy or not depends on students also. Some students find it difficult some find it easy or some find it in middle of easy and difficult.   Last Edited: August 26, 2023
