# Find the zero of the polynomial in the following case:- p(x) = cx + d, c ≠ 0, c, d are real numbers. - Mathematics

Find the zero of the polynomial in the following case:- p(x) = cx + d, c ≠ 0, c, d are real numbers.

#### Solution

p(x) = cx + d

p(x) = 0

cx+ d = 0

x = -d/c

Therefore, for x = -d/c, the value of the polynomial is 0 and hence, x = -d/c is a zero of the given polynomial.
