a. 3

b. -12

c. -6

d. 6

**Answer:** c

Explanation: When x= -1

f(x)=5x−4x^{2}+3

f(−1)=5(−1) −4(−1)^{2}+3

=−5–4+3

=−6

**9) The value of p(t) = 2+t+2t ^{2}−t^{3} when t=0 is**

a. 2

b. 1

c. 4

d. 0

**Answer:** a

Explanation: p(0)=2+0+2(0)^{2}–(0)^{3}=2

**10) The zero of the polynomial f(x) = 2x+7 is**

a. 2/7

b. -2/7

c. 7/2

d. -7/2

**Answer:** d

Explanation: f(x)=2x+7

⇒2x+7=0

⇒2x=−7

⇒x=−7/2

∴x = −7/2 is a zero polynomial of the polynomial f(x).

**11) What is the degree of the polynomial ****√3?**

a. 0

b. 1

c. 1/2

d. 2

Answer: c

Explanation: The polynomial √3 can also be written as 3^{1/2}.

Hence, the degree of the polynomial √3 is 1/2.

**12) The degree of the constant polynomial is**

a. 0

b. 1

c. 2

d. 3

Answer: 0

Explanation: The degree of the constant polynomial is 0. For example, 3 is a constant polynomial that is equal to 3x^{0}, and its degree is 0.

**13) One of the linear factors of 3x**^{2}**+8x+5 is**

a. (x+1)

b. (x-2)

c. (x+2)

d. (x-4)

Answer: a

Explanation: 3x^{2}+8x+5 = 3x^{2}+ 3x+5x+5

3x^{2}+8x+5 = 3x(x+1)+5(x+1)

3x^{2}+8x+5 = (3x+5)(x+1)

Therefore, (x+1) is one of the factors of 3x^{2}+8x+5.

**14) The coefficient of x in 7x**^{2}**+6x-2 is **

a. 2

b. 6

c. -2

**17) If x**^{2}**+kx+6 = (x+2)(x+3) for all k, find the value of k.**

a. -1

b. 1

c. 3

d. 5

Answer: d

Explanation: x^{2}+kx+6 = (x+2)(x+3)

x^{2}+kx+6 = x^{2}+3x+2x+6

x^{2}+kx+6 = x^{2}+5x+6

Hence, the value of k is 5.
