If ax^2 + bx + c = 0 If a,b,c E R. Find the condition that this equation would have atleast one root in [0,2].

• maths -

a x ^ 2 + b x + c = a ( x - x1 ) ( x - x2 )

In this case :

a x ^ 2 + b x + c = a ( x - 0 ) ( x - 2 ) = a x ( x - 2 ) = a ( x ^ 2 - 2 x )

plse explain me again, i didn't get it..

• maths -

plsee ..i need urgent

• maths -

If x1 and x2 are two roots of equation

a x ^2 + b x + c =0

then

a x ^ 2 + b x + c = a ( x - x1 ) ( x -x2 )

• maths -

a

• maths -

That is true for any value of a

example:

3 ( x ^ 2 - 2 x ) = 0

has roots 0 and 2

7 ( x ^ 2 - 2 x ) = 0

has roots 0 and 2

39 ( x ^ 2 - 2 x ) = 0

has roots 0 and 2

etc.

Thank You so much..
