# If a Quadratic Polynomial F(X) is a Square of a Linear Polynomial, Then Its Two Zeros Are Coincident. (True/False). - Mathematics

Sum
True or False

If a quadratic polynomial f(x) is a square of a linear polynomial, then its two zeros are coincident. (True/False).

#### Solution

The polynomial f(x) = x62 = (x - 0)(x -0) has two identical factors. The curve  y = x^2 cuts X axis at two coincident points that is exactly at one point.

Hence, quadratic polynomial f(x) is a square of linear polynomial then its two zeros are coincident.  True .
