Solutions for Class 9 Maths Chapter 6 Factorization of Polynomials Exercise 6.2

Important Definitions RD Sharma Chapter 6 Class 9 Maths Exercise 6.2 Solutions

The Chapter 6 Class 9 Maths Exercise 6.2, the factorization of polynomials is based on the following topics and subtopics-

1. Zeros (roots) of a polynomial.
2. Value of a polynomial: The value of a polynomial f(x) at x = a is concerned about replacing x = a in the given polynomial and is indicated by f(a).
3. Results of some Important theorem.

Zeros/ Roots of a Polynomial

It is an answer to the polynomial equation, P(x) = 0. It is such a value of x that forms the polynomial equal to 0.

In other terms, the number ‘r’ is a root of a polynomial P(x), if and only if  P(r) = 0.

Example-

1. Let P(x) = 5x3 − 4x2 + 7x − 8.  Then a root of that polynomial is 1 because according to the definition:

= 5 – 4 + 7 – 8

= 0

It is usual to speak of a root of a polynomial. In general, we say a zero.

2. The roots of the quadratic-

= x2 – x- 6 = (x+2) (x-3)

are −2 and 3.  Those are the values of ‘x’ that will give the polynomial equal to 0.

Value of a Polynomial

The value of a polynomial f(x) at x = a is concerned about replacing x = a in the given polynomial and is indicated by f(a).

Example-

7+5-2 is a polynomial is of degree 2 or a quadratic polynomial in.

Examples Based on the Value of Polynomial

Ques- f(x) = 3x + 1, x = −1/3

Solution- f(x) = 3x + 1, x = −1/3

f(x) = 3x + 1

Substitute x = −1/3 in f(x)

f( −1/3) = 3(−1/3) + 1

= -1 + 1

= 0

Since, the result is 0, so x = −1/3 is the root of 3x + 1

Ques 2- g(x) = 3x2 – 2 , x = 2/√3 , −2/√3

Solution- g(x) = 3x2 – 2

Substitute x = 2/√3 in g(x)

g(2/√3) = 3(2/√3)2 – 2

= 3(4/3) – 2

= 4 – 2

= 2 ≠ 0

Now, Substitute x = −2/√3 in g(x)

g(2/√3) = 3(-2/√3)2 – 2

= 3(4/3) – 2

= 4 – 2

= 2 ≠ 0

Since, the results when x = 2/√3 and x = −2/√3) are not 0. Therefore (2/√3 , −2/√3 ) are not zeros of 3x2–2.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) of RD Sharma Chapter 6 Class 9 Maths Exercise 6.2 Solutions

Ques 1- What is the meaning of rationalization?

Ans- Rationalization means organizing something into a logically consistent system.

Ques 2- Can 0 be a polynomial?

Ans- Alike any constant value, the value Zero (0) can be recognized as a (constant) polynomial, called the zero polynomial.

Ques 3- Can zero be a root?

Ans- A root/ zero of a polynomial is the value(s) of X that makes the polynomial to = 0 (or make Y=0). This is an X-intercept. The root is the X-value, and zero (0) is the Y-value.
