# One of the zeroes of the polynomial 2x² + 7x -4 is

a. 2

b. 1/2

c. -1/2

d. -2

**Solution:**

We know that

Zero of the polynomial p(x) = 0

It is given that

p(x) = 2x² + 7x -4

So we get

2x² + 7x -4 = 0

By splitting the middle term

2x (x + 4) - 1 (x + 4) = 0

(x + 4) (2x - 1) = 0

We get

x = -4 and x = 1/2

Therefore, one of the zeroes is 1/2.

**✦ Try This: **One of the zeroes of the polynomial 3x² + 6x - 4 is

We know that

Zero of the polynomial p(x) = 0

It is given that

p(x) = 3x² + 6x - 4

So we get

3x² + 12x - 12 = 0

By splitting the middle term

3x² + 6x + 6x - 12 = 0

3x (x + 2) - 6 (x + 2) = 0

(x + 2) (3x - 6) = 0

We get

x = -2 and x = 1/2

Therefore, the zeroes of the polynomial are -2 and 1/2.
