#### Important Terms on 9th Maths Chapter 2

- A combination of constants and variables, connected by four fundamental arithmetical operations +, -, x and / is called an algebraic expression. e.g. 6x² – 5y² + 2xy
- An algebraic expression which have only whole numbers as the exponent of one variable, is called polynomial in one variable. e.g. 3x³ + 2x² – 7x + 5 etc.
- The part of a polynomial separated from each other by + or – sign is called a term and each term of a polynomial has a coefficient.
- Highest power of the variable in a polynomial, is known as degree of that polynomial.
- The value obtained on putting a particular value of the variable in polynomial is called value of the polynomial at the value of variable.
- Zero of a polynomial p(x) is a number alpha, such that p(alpha) = 0. It is also called root pf polynomial equation p(x) = 0.
- Let f(x) be any polynomial of degree n,(n ≥ 1) and a be any real number. If f(x) is divided by the linear polynomial (x-a), then the remainder is f(a).
- Let f(x) be a polynomial of degree n,(n ≥ 1) and a be any real number. Then,

i). If f(a) = 0, then (x – a) is a factor of f(x).

ii). If (x – a) is a factor of f(x), then f(a) = 0.

### Important Questions on 9th Maths Chapter 2

##### Determine whether polynomials x³ + x² + x + 1 has x + 1 a factor?

Let p(x) = x³ + x² + x + 1 Putting x + 1 = 0, we get, x = – 1 Using remainder theorem, when p(x)= x³ + x² + x + 1 is divided by x + 1, remainder is given by p(-1) = (-1)³ + (-1)² + (-1) + 1 = – 1 + 1 – 1 + 1 = 0 Since, remainder p(-1) = 0, Hence x + 1 is a factor of x³ + x² + x + 1.

##### Use the Factor Theorem to determine whether g(x) is a factor of p(x): p(x) = 2x³ + x² – 2x – 1, g(x) = x + 1.

p(x) = 2x³ + x² – 2x – 1 and g(x) = x + 1 Putting x + 1 = 0, we get, x = -1 Using remainder theorem, when p(x) = 2x³ + x² – 2x – 1 is divided by g(x) = x + 1, remainder is given by p(-1) = (-1)³ + (-1)² + (-1) + 1 = – 1 + 1 – 1 + 1 = 0 Since, remainder p(-1) = 0, hence g(x) is a factor of p(x).

##### Find the value of k, if x – 1 is a factor of p(x) = x² + x + k.

p(x) = x² + x + k Putting x – 1 = 0, we get, x = 1 Using remainder theorem, When p(x) = x² + x + k is divided by x – 1, remainder is given by p(1) = (1)² + (1) + k = 2 + k Since x – 1 is a factor of p(x), hence remainder p(1) = 0 ⇒ 2 + k = 0 ⇒ k = -2

##### Find the zero of the polynomial p(x) = x + 5.

p(x) = x + 5 Putting p(x) = 0, we get x + 5 = 0 ⇒ x = – 5 Hence, x = – 5 is a zero of the polynomial p(x).
