Find the zero of the polynomial in the following case:- p(x) = x + 5

###### Advertisements

#### Solution

Zero of a polynomial is that value of the variable at which the value of the polynomial is obtained as 0.

*p*(*x*) = *x* + 5

*p*(*x*) = 0

*x* + 5 = 0

*x* = − 5

Therefore, for *x* = −5, the value of the polynomial is 0 and hence, *x* = −5 is a zero of the given polynomial.
