# Determine Whether X = -1 is a Root of the Equation X2 – 3x +2=0 Or Not. - ICSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

Determine whether x = -1 is a root of the equation x2 – 3x +2=0 or not.

#### Solution

x^2 - 3x + 2 = 0

Put x = -1 in LHS

LHS = (-1)^2 -  3(-1) + 2

= 1 + 3 + 2 = 6 ≠ R.H.S

Then x = -1 is not the solution of the given equation.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
