ConceptRelationship Between Zeroes and Coefficients of a Polynomial

#### Question

If the zeros of the polynomial f(x) = ax3 + 3bx2 + 3cx + d are in A.P., prove that 2b3 − 3abc + a2d = 0.

#### Solution

Let a - d, a and a + d be the zeros of the polynomial f(x). Then,

Sum of the zeroes =("coefficient of "x^2)/("coefficient of "x^3)

a-d+a+a+d=(-3b)/a

3a=(-3b)/a

a=(-3b)/axx1/3

a=(-b)/a

Since a is a zero of the polynomial f(x).

Therefore,

f(x) = ax3 + 3bx2 + 3cx + d

f(a) = 0

f(a) = aa3 + 3ba2 + 3ca + d

aa3 + 3ba2 + 3ca + d = 0

a((-b)/a)^3+3bxx((-b)/a)^2+3cxx((-b)/a)+d=0

axx(-b)/axx(-b)/axx(-b)/a+3xxbxx(-b)/axx(-b)/a+3xxcxx(-b)/a+d=0

(-b^3)/a^2+(3b^3)/a^2-(3cb)/a+d=0

(-b^3+3b^3-3abc+a^2d)/a^2=0

2b3 − 3abc + a2d = 0 xa2

2b3 − 3abc + a2d = 0

Hence, it is proved that 2b3 − 3abc + a2d = 0
