What is the product of the irrational roots of the equation (2x-1)(2x-3)(2x-5)(2x-7)=9?

Asked By: mannava_05 | Asked On: Feb 8th, 2006

Answered by: Naveen on: Sep 28th, 2014

This is a fourth degree equation. Therefore it will have 4 roots (real or imaginary). It clearly has 2 equal roots equal to 2. Constant term = (-1)*(-3)*(-5)*(-7) -9 = 96. Coefficient of x^4 = 2*2*2*2 = 16
Hence product of other 2 roots = 96/(16*2*2) = 3/2 = 1.5

Answered by: akshatha hebbar on: Sep 12th, 2014

Product of irrational roots...
X= ((1/2)*(4+√10))*((1/2)*4-√10)
X=3/2
