Therefore, square will be 9q2 = 3m, 9q2 + 1 + 6q = 3(3q2 + 2q) + 1 = 3m + 1, 9q2 + 12q + 4 = 3(3q2 + 4q + 1) + 1 = 3m + 1. Hence, square of any positive integer cannot be of the form 3m + 2. 12. Find the quadratic polynomial, the sum and product of whose zeroes are –5 and 6. Sol. Let α and β be the zeroes of the required polynomial p(x). Then, α + β = –5 and αβ = 6 ∴ p(x) = x2 – (α + β) x + αβ = x2 – (–5) x + 6 = x2 + 5x + 6 Hence, the required polynomial is f(x) = x2 + 5x + 6. 13.

So, let x = 2m + 1 and y = 2n + 1 for some integers m and n. ∴ x2 + y2 = (2m + 1)2 + (2n + 1)2 ⇒ x2 + y2 = 4 (m2 + n2) + 4(m + n) + 2 ⇒ x2 + y2 = 4 {(m2 + n2) + (m + n)} + 2 ⇒ x2 + y2 = 4q + 2, where q = (m2 + n2) + (m + n) ⇒ x2 + y2 is even and leaves remainder 2 when divided by 4 Proved. ⇒ x2 + y2 is even but not divisible by 4 OR Show that 2 3 is irrational.
