Given:

The zeroes of the quadratic polynomial $x^{2}+(a+1) x+b$ are 2 and $-3$

To do:

We have to find the values of $a$ and $b$.

Solution:

$x^2+(a+1)x+b$ is the quadratic polynomial.

$2$ and $-3$ are the zeros of the quadratic polynomial.

Thus,

Sum of the zeroes$=2+(-3)=-\frac{a+1}{1}$

$\Rightarrow -\frac{a+1}{1}=-1$

$\Rightarrow a+1=1$

$\Rightarrow a=0$

Also, Product of the zeroes$=2\times (-3)=\frac{b}{1}$

$\Rightarrow b=-6$

Thus, $a=0,\ b=-6$.
