Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:

x3+3x2+9x+c=0a and c are roots of the equation.Sum of roots=a+a+b=-312a+b=-3b=-3-2a=-3+2aSum of roots taking two at a time we geta2+ab+ab=91a2+2ab=-9a2-2a3+2a=9a2-6a-4a2=93a2+6a+9=0Divide each term by 3a2+2a+1=0a+12=0a=-1b=-3+2a=-3-2=-1Product of roots=-c1-1×-1×-1=-cc=1
