do it , if alpha beta gama are the rootsof x^3-x-1=0 then 1+alpha/1-alpha+1+beta/1

```clearly, alpha + beta + gama = 0 ------ (i)alpha2 + beta2 + gama2 = -1alpha x beta + beta x gama + gama x alpha = -1alpha x beta x gama = 1So,on dividing alpha x beta + beta x gama + gama x alpha by alpha x beta x gama we get,1/alpha + 1/beta + 1/gama = -1Adding 3 to both the sides we get(1 + alpha)/alpha + (1 + beta)/beta + (1 + gama)/gama = 2But what next to do??????????
```
