Answer:[tex] \frac{ – 10}{9} [/tex]

Step-by-step explanation:By cross multiplying, we get

[tex] \frac{2}{ \alpha } + \frac{2}{ \beta } = \frac{2( \alpha + \beta) }{ \alpha \beta } [/tex]

Now, alpha and beta are zeros of quadratic x^2-5x-9

so using the property for sum of roots and product of roots of a quadratic polynomial, we get

[tex] \alpha + \beta = \frac{ – ( – 5)}{1} = 5[/tex]

[tex] \alpha \beta = \frac{ – 9}{1} = – 9[/tex]

So,

[tex] \frac{2}{ \alpha } + \frac{2}{ \beta } = \frac{2( \alpha + \beta) }{ \alpha \beta } = \frac{2 \times 5}{ – 9} = \frac{ – 10}{9} [/tex]

So answer is (-10/9)
