If alpha & beta are zeroes of the quadratic polynomial x^{2} - 6x + 8, then find the value of alpha - beta (alpha > beta)

please explain the answer step by step

x

^{2}- 6x + 8

x

^{2 }- 4x - 2x + 8

x(x - 4) -2(x - 4)

(x - 4)(x - 2)

So, therefore alpha = 4 and beta = 2 (as alpha > beta )

Hence, alpha - beta

= 4 - 2
