```										Dear garima,
A vector is something that mathematicians and engineers use to represent or    calculate a force that has direction. The vector will show the direction of    the force and the size of the force as well. Sometimes vectors are represented    by arrows, with length or thickness of the arrow representing force, and direction    representing direction. Sometimes vectors are represented by sets of numbers.
Often vectors are used in spacecraft navigation. The engineers know where they    want to go and use vectors to figure out what direction to thrust in to go there.

We have Similarly, So if P(x) = a/2 x 2 +bx +c, then and are off opposite sign and hence there must exist a root between the two numbers.

In the listed image can you tell me how beta*gamma = 2 ….. . . .. ??

The value of gamma is still not correct, either printing mistake or you gave me wrong value. The correct value of gamma is below

Yes sorry..... . . . .it is not so clear.. ok the values are beta = α + α^2 + α^4 and gamma = α^3 + α^5 + α^7
