#### Solution

If `x = -1/sqrt3" and "x = 2/sqrt3` are zeroes of polynomial *p*(*x*) = 3*x*^{2} − 1, then

`p(-1/sqrt3) and p(2/sqrt3)" should be 0."`

`"Here, "p(-1/sqrt3)=3(-1/sqrt3)^2-1=3(1/3)-1=1-1=0," and"`

`p(2/sqrt3)=3(2/sqrt3)^2-1=3(4/3)-1=4-1=3`

Hence, `x=-1/sqrt3` is a zero of the given polynomial.

However, `x=2/sqrt3` is not a zero of the given polynomial.
