\[\alpha+\beta = \alpha^{2}-\beta^{2}\ = (\alpha+\beta)(\alpha-\beta)\] Here, if \(\alpha+\beta = 0\), the equation will be true, therefore one of the answer is \(\beta = -\alpha\), but if \(\alpha+\beta \neq 0\), you will get \(1 = \alpha-\beta\) or \(\beta = \alpha-1\). \(\beta\) may be represented as \(\beta = -\alpha, \alpha-1\) Kay Xspre · 1 year, 1 month ago
