### Class 10 Maths Polynomials Mind Map

#### Polynomial

An algebraic expression f(x) of the form

f(x) = a_{0} + a_{1}x + a_{2}x^{2} +…. + a_{n}x^{n},

where a_{0}, a_{1}, ……., a_{n} are real numbers and all indices of variables are non-negative integers is called polynomial in variable x.

(i) The highest power of x is called degree of the polynomial.

(ii) a_{0}, a_{1}x,….,a_{n}x^{n} are terms of the polynomial.

(iii) a_{0}, a_{1} ,….a_{n} are co-efficients of the polynomial.

#### Standard Forms of Linear, Quadratic and Cubic Polynomials

**(i) Linear Polynomial:**

ax + b, where a, b are real numbers and a ≠ 0.

**(ii) Quadratic Polynomial:**

ax^{2} + bx + c, where a, b, c are real numbers & a ≠ 0.

**(iii) Cubic Polynomials:**

ax^{3} + bx^{2} + cx + d, where a, b, c, d are real numbers and a ≠ 0.

#### Value of a Polynomial

The value of a polynomial f(x) at x = a is obtained by substituting x = a in the given polynomial and is denoted by/(a).

#### Zero(es)/Root(s) of Polynomial

x = r is a zero of a polynomial p(x) if p(r) = 0.

#### Geometrical Meaning of Zeroes of a Polynomial

Zero(es) of a polynomial is/are the x-coordinate of the point(s) where graph y = fix) intersects the x-axis.

(i) Linear polynomial: Graph of linear polynomial is a straight line and has exactly one zero.

(ii) Quadratic polynomial: Graph of quadratic polynomial is always a parabola and this polynomial can have atmost two zeroes.

(iii) Cubic polynomial: Cubic polynomial can have atmost three zeroes.

#### Cases of Quadratic Polynomial

Case-I : If a quadratic polynomial P(x) = ax^{2} + bx + c has two zeroes, then its graph will intersect the x-axis at two distinct points A and B as shown in the figure.

Case-II: If a quadratic polynomial P(x) = ax^{2} + bx + c has only one zero, then its graph will touch the x-axis at only one point A as shown in the figure.

Case-III : If a quadratic polynomial P(x) = ax^{2} + bx + c has no zero, then its graph will not intersect /touch the x-axis at any point as shown in the figure.

Relationship between Zeroes and Coefficients of a Polynomial

(i) Zero of a linear polynomial ax + b is x = (-frac{b}{a})

(ii) If α and β are the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial ax^{2} + bx + c, then

α + β = (-frac{b}{a})

(iii) If α, β and γ are zeroes of the cubic polynomial ax^{3} + bx^{2} + cx + d then

#### Division Algorithm

If p(x) and g(x) are any two polynomials with g(x) ≠ 0, then we can find polynomials q(x) and r(x) such that p(x) = g(x) × q(x) + r(x)

where either r(x) = 0 or degree of r(x) < degree of g(x)
