Polynomial Equation Under The Moon Light

Algebra Level 4

If we know that x6+x5+x4+x3+x2+x+1=0x^6 + x^5 + x^4 + x^3 + x^2 +x + 1 = 0

And given that a=(1x+x)(1x+x+2)(1x+x1)b=(1x+x)3+(1x+x1)2\begin{aligned} a &=& \left(\frac{1}{x} + x \right)\left(\frac{1}{x} +x + 2\right)\left(\frac{1}{x} + x - 1\right) \\ b &=& \left(\frac{1}{x} + x \right)^3 +\left (\frac{1}{x} +x - 1 \right)^2 \end{aligned}

What is the value of a+ba+b?
