Question 44 A polynomial q(t) with sum of zeroes as 1 and the product as −6 is modelling Anu’s height in feet above the water at any time t( in seconds). Then q(t) is given by (a) t2 + t + 6 (b) t2 + t − 6 (c) −8t2 + 8t + 48 (d) 8t2 − 8t + 48
The quadratic polynomial is
t2 − (Sum of roots)t + Product of roots
Putting values
𝑡^2−(1)𝑡+(−6)
𝒕^𝟐−𝒕−𝟔
But, we can multiply any constant to this polynomial,
And that polynomial would have the same zeroes
Multiplying by −8
q(t) = −8 × (t2 − t − 6)
q(t) = −8t2 + 8t + 48
So, the correct answer is (c)
