# Verify whether the following zeroes of the polynomial, indicated against them. p(x) = lx + m, x = – m/l - Mathematics

Verify whether the following zeroes of the polynomial, indicated against them.

p(x) = lx + m, x = – m/l

#### Solution

If x = -m/l is a zero of polynomial p(x) = lx + m, then p(-m/l) should be 0.

Here, p(-m/l) = l(-m/l)+m=-m+m=0

Therefore, x = -m/l is a zero of the given polynomial.
