first of all we take LCM then it comes ax-ab+bx-ab=x^2+ab-ax-bx

now x^2-2(a+b)x+3ab=0 now roots are equal in magnitude opp. in sign therfoe sum of roots =0

therefor a+b =0

First of all you take LCM then you get
 X^2 -2(a + b)X +3ab = 0
Then apply quadratic formula
  X = -b +- ✓b^2 - 4ac/2a
Then you got 2 answers
 1:  X1 = a + b + ✓a^2 -ab + b^2
 2:  X2 = a + b - ✓a^2 -ab + b^2
  According to the condition
          X1 = -X2
After calculation you got
   a+b = 0
 Hope you understand
