Solution to Problem 1

\(\begin{align} a^2+b^2+ab-\sqrt 3b+1 & =0 \\ b^2 + (a-\sqrt 3)b + a^2+ 1 & = 0 \\ \implies b & = \frac {\sqrt 3-a \pm \sqrt{a^2-2\sqrt 3a + 3 - 4a^2-4}}2 \\ & = \frac {\sqrt 3-a \pm \sqrt{-3a^2-2\sqrt 3a -1}}2 \\ & = \frac {\sqrt 3-a \pm (\sqrt3 a+1)i}2 \\ \implies b - a & = \frac {\sqrt 3-3a \pm (\sqrt3 a+1)i}2 \end{align} \)
