QUESTION:ANSWER:## Given:

## To Find:

## Solution:

[tex]\text{We are given that,}\\\:\longrightarrow f(x)=2x^3-3kx^2+4x-5\\\\\text{We know that,}\\\\\text{For a cubic polynomial, $p(x)=ax^2+bx^2+cx+d$,}\\\\:\hookrightarrow\text{Sum of zeroes}=-\dfrac{\text{Coefficient of x$^2$}}{\text{Coefficient of x$^3$}}\\\\:\hookrightarrow\text{Sum of zeroes}=-\dfrac{b}{a}\\\\\text{So,}\\\\\text{Here, a = 2 and b = -3k. So,}\\\\:\implies\text{Sum of zeroes}=-\dfrac{-3k}{2}\\\\:\implies\text{Sum of zeroes}=\dfrac{3k}{2}[/tex]

[tex]\text{But, we are given that,}\\\\:\longrightarrow\text{Sum of zeroes}=6\\\\\text{So,}\\\\:\implies\dfrac{3k}{2}=6\\\\\text{On cross-multiplying,}\\\\:\implies3k=6\times2\\\\:\implies3k=12\\\\\text{On transposing 3 to RHS,}\\\\:\implies k=\dfrac{12\!\!\!\!\!/^{\:\:4}}{3\!\!\!/}\\\\\bf{:\implies k=4}\\\\\text{\bf{Hence, value of ‘k’ is 4(Option C).}}[/tex]

## Formula Used:

[tex]\text{For a cubic polynomial, $p(x)=ax^2+bx^2+cx+d$,}\\\\:\hookrightarrow\text{Sum of zeroes}=-\dfrac{\text{Coefficient of x$^2$}}{\text{Coefficient of x$^3$}}\\\\:\hookrightarrow\text{Sum of zeroes}=-\dfrac{b}{a}[/tex]
