I presume *ɑ* and *β* are the roots, which are complex. Since we are going to deal with their powers, best to convert them to cos–sin form:

So the roots are

one of them is *ɑ*, the other is *β*. Since the question doesn’t say which is which, you may as well take your pick. Now use De Moivre’s theorem.
