In the given problem, we have, our polynomial, \[p(x) = 3x + 1\]

So, to find the zeros of the equation, we will equate it to zero,

Thus we get, \[3x + 1 = 0\]

\[ \Rightarrow 3x = - 1\]

On simplifying we get,

\[ \Rightarrow x = \dfrac{{ - 1}}{3}\]

So, a zero of the polynomial is \[ = \dfrac{{ - 1}}{3}\]
