# Which of the following is a zero for the function f(x) = (x + 3)(x - 7)(x + 5)?

x = -7, x = -3, x = 3, x = 5

**Solution:**

Given: Function f(x) = (x + 3)(x - 7)(x + 5)

To find the number of zeroes in the given function, we check for f(x) = 0.

Hence, (x + 3)(x - 7)(x + 5) = 0

Here,

x + 3 = 0 or x = -3

x - 7 = 0 or x = 7

x + 5 = 0 or or x = -5

Therefore, the zero for the function is x = -3, x = 7 and x = -5.

From the given options, the zero for the function is x = -3.

## Which of the following is a zero for the function f(x) = (x + 3)(x - 7)(x + 5)?

x = -7, x = -3, x = 3, x = 5

**Summary:**

The zero for the function f(x) = (x + 3)(x - 7)(x + 5) is x = -3.
