in a2+px+q, the roots are a and b, then a+b=-p and ab=q why????? Pls derive this!!!!!!!

```
9 years ago

```							x2 + px + q = 0
a,b are the roots of this equation so x = a will satisfy this eq
at x = a
a2 + pa + q = 0       ..............1

at x = b also satisfies this equation so
at x =b
b2 + pb + q = 0           ..............2

subtracting both equations
(a2-b2) + p(a-b)) = 0
(a-b)[(a+b) + p] = 0
(a+b) = -p             ...........3       ans1

a2+b2 + p(a+b) + 2q = 0                                           [(a+b)2 = a2+b2 + 2ab]
(a+b)2-2ab + p(a+b) + 2q = 0
from eq3 plugging value of a+b
p2 - 2ab - p2 + 2q = 0
q = ab     ...........4               ans2
hence , a+b = -p & ab = q
