If a and b are the roots of the equation x^{2} – 9x + 20 = 0, find the value of a^{2} + b^{2} + ab?
Correct
a^{2} + b^{2} + ab = a^{2} + b^{2} + 2ab – ab
i.e., (a + b)^{2} – ab
from x^{2} – 9x + 20 = 0, we have
a + b = 9 and ab = 20. Hence the value of required expression (9)^{2} – 20 = 61.Incorrect
a^{2} + b^{2} + ab = a^{2} + b^{2} + 2ab – ab
i.e., (a + b)^{2} – ab
