# If 1 is a root of the equation ay2 + ay + 3 = 0 and y2 + y + b = 0 then find the value of ab.

Given that y = 1 is a root of the equation ay2 + ay + 3 = 0

a.12 + a.1 + 3 = 0

a + a + 3 = 0

2a + 3 = 0

a = - 3/2

Also y = 1 is a root of the equation y2 + y + b = 0

12 + 1 + b = 0

2 + b = 0

b = - 2

Thus the value of ab = 3
