MCQ

If sin α and cos α are the roots of the equations ax2 + bx + c = 0, then b2 =

#### Options

•  a2 − 2ac

•  a2 + 2ac

• a2 − ac

• a2 + ac

#### Solution

The given quadric equation is ax^2 + bx + c = 0, and sin alpha and cos beta are roots of given equation.

And, a = a,b = b and, c = c

Then, as we know that sum of the roots

sin alpha + cos beta - (-b)/a…. (1)

And the product of the roots

sin alpha .cos beta =c/a…. (2)

Squaring both sides of equation (1) we get

(sin alpha + cos beta)^2 = ((-b)/a)^2

sin^2 alpha + cos^2 beta + 2 sin alpha cos beta = b^2/a^2

Putting the value of sin^2 alpha + cos^2 beta = 1, we get

1 + 2 sin alpha cos beta = b^2/a^2

a^2 (1+2 sin alpha cos beta) = b^2

Putting the value ofsin alpha.cos beta = c/a , we get

a^2 (1 + 2 c/a) = b^2

a^2 ((a+2c)/a) = b^2

a^2 + 2ac =b^2

Therefore, the value of b^2 = a^2 + 2ac.
