Solution:Given that a polynomial .
We have to find the value of .
Let and assume and to be the zeroes of the polynomial p(x), then write the sum of the zeroes.
We know the sum of zeroes of a quadratic polynomial is and the product of zeroes is
Write the product of the zeroes.
Use the sum and product of zeroes to write the value of .
Hence, the value equal to is .
Therefore, option (3) is correct.
