# Find the Value of K Such that the Polynomial X2 − (K + 6)X + 2(2k −1) Has Sum of Its Zeros Equal to Half of Their Product. - Mathematics

Sum

Find the value of k such that the polynomial x2 − (k + 6)x + 2(2k −1) has sum of its zeros equal to half of their product.

#### Solution

Given polynomial is x2 - (k + 6) x + 2 (2k – 1)

Here
a = 1, b = - (k + 6), c =  2 (2k – 1)

Given that,
Sum of zeroes = (1)/(2) product of zeroes

⇒ [-[-("k"+6)]]/(1) = (1)/(2) xx (2(2"k" - 1))/(1)

⇒ "k" + 6 = 2"k" - 1
⇒ 6 + 1 = 2"k" - "k"
⇒ "k" = 7
