soln:

a^2 + b^2 = 22 (given)..................(1)
a^4 + b^4 = 386 (given)..................(2)

{a^2 + b^2 }^2= 484 (from eqn 1)
a^4 + b^4 + 2 a^2 b^2 = 484
386 + 2 a^2 b^2 = 484
a^2 b^2 = 49
ab = 7


now..
(a+b)^2 = a^2 + b^2 + 2ab
(a+b)^2 = 22 + 2*7
a+b = 6................ (3)


a^3 + b^3 = (a+b)(a^2 - ab + b^2)
a^3 + b^3 = 6 *(22 - 7)
a^3 + b^3= 6 * (15)
a^3 + b^3= 90
