ConceptRelationship Between Zeroes and Coefficients of a Polynomial

#### Question

If α and β are the zeros of the quadratic polynomial f(x) = x2 − p (x + 1) — c, show that (α + 1)(β +1) = 1− c.

#### Solution

Since α and β are the zeros of the quadratic polynomial f(x) = x2 − p (x + 1) — c

Then

x2 - p(x + 1) - c

x2 - px - p - c

alpha+beta="-coefficient of x"/("coefficient of "x^2)

=(-(-p))/1

= p

alphabeta="constant term"/("coefficient of "x^2)

=(-p-c)/1

= -p-c

We have to prove that (α + 1)(β +1) = 1 − c

(α + 1)(β +1) = 1 - c

(α + 1)β + (α +1)(1) = 1 - c

αβ + β + α + 1 = 1 - c

αβ + (α + β) + 1 = 1 - c

Substituting α + β = p and αβ = -p-c we get,

-p - c + p + 1 = 1 - c

1 - c = 1 - c

Hence, it is shown that (α + 1)(β +1) = 1 - c

Is there an error in this question or solution?
