```										from the first equation, a+b+1=0, from the second equation, c-1=0,c=1,
the quadratic equation in 'x': x^2+ax+b=x(c-x), has only one solution, thus discriminant is zero, (a-c)^2 =8b,c=1,
(a-1)^2 =8b, now combining this with a+b+1=0, and solving we get a=-3,b=2,c=1,b+c=3

```										y=x^2+ax+b .......1
y=cx-x^2..........2
if both parabola touch each other then they will have a common tangent , we can find dy/dx/solpe  of tangent  from any of the curve
dy/dx for curve 1=2x +a at 1,0
=a+2....eq3
dy/dx for curve 2=c-2x at 1,0
=c-2.....eq4
since 1,0 is point of contact so it will satisfy both the curves
a+b+2=0....eq5
c-1=0......eq6
after solving we get  a=-3,b=1
