Expert Answer:

                          aX2  +aX +3 =0  ,     X2  + X + b =0  are the 2 equations having the same roots  X= 1

 substituting X =1  in both equations ,

                     a + a + 3 =0 ==> a = -- 3/2

                     1  +1+b  = 0 ===> b = -- 2

    ab  = --3 / 2 x --2  = 3

                    ab ==3
