#### Exercise- 5A

( Root of Quadratic Equations and method of factorization with zero product rule )

##### Que-1: Find which of the following are the solution of the equation  6x²-x-2 =0 ?

(i) 1/2   (ii) -1/2   (iii) 2/3

##### Que-2: Determine whether x = -1/3 and x = 2/3 are the solution of the equation 9x²-3x-2 = 0.
###### Solution- Given equation is 9x2 – 3x – 2 = 0; and x = -1/3, or 𝑥 = 2/3 Substitute x = -1/3 in the L.H.S. L.H.S. = 9(-1/3)²-3×(-1/3)-2 = 9×1/9+1-2 = 2 – 2 = 0 = R.H.S.Hence, x = -1/3 is a solution of the equation.

Again now put x = 2/3
L.H.S. = 9(2/3)²-3(2/3)-2
= 9×4/9-2-2
= 4 – 4
= 0
= R.H.S.
Hence, x = 2/3 is a solution of the equation.
