## Answers ( )

Alpha = a & beta = b

Answer:4

Step-by-step explanation:Polynomials written in form of x^2 – Sx + P, represent S as sum of roots anf P as product of roots.

So, here,

Sum = a + b = 1

Product = ab = – 1

= > a + b = 1

Cube on both sides –= > ( a + b )³ = 1³

= > a³ + b³ + 3ab( a + b ) = 1

= > a³ + b³ + 3(product)(sum) = 1

= > a³ + b³ + 3(-1)(1) = 1

= > a³ + b³ – 3 = 1

= > a³ + b³ = 1+ 3

= >

a³+b³=4
