ConceptRelationship Between Zeroes and Coefficients of a Polynomial

Question

If 𝛼 and 𝛽 are the zeros of the quadratic polynomial p(x) = 4x2 − 5x −1, find the value of α + αβ2.

Solution

Since 𝛼 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝛽 are the roots of the polynomial: 4𝑥2 − 5𝑥 − 1

∴ Sum of the roots alpha+beta=5/4

Product of the roots alphabeta=(-1)/4

Hence alpha^2beta+alphabeta^2=alphabeta(alpha+beta)=5/4((-1)/4)=(-5)/16

Is there an error in this question or solution?
