Find the value a2 + ß2 and (a - ß)2, Mathematics

If  α,β are the zeros of the polynomial 2x2 - 4x + 5 find the value of a) α2 + β2  b) (α - β)2.

Ans: p (x) = 2 x2 - 4 x + 5           (Ans: a) -1 , b) -6)

α + β = -b /a = 4/2 = 2

α β = c/a = 5/2

α2 + β2 = (α + β)2 - 2 α β

Substitute then we get, α 2+ β2 = -1

(α - β)2 = (α + β)2  - 4 α β

Substitute, we get  = (α - β)2  = - 6
