B=\begin{bmatrix} 5 &2\alpha &1 \\ 0 &2 &1 \\ \alpha & 3 &-1 \end{bmatrix}

\left | B \right |=5\left ( -5 \right )-2\alpha \left ( -\alpha \right )-2\alpha

        =2\alpha ^{2}-2\alpha -25

1+\left | A \right |=2\alpha ^{2}-2\alpha -25+1=0

                =2\alpha ^{2}-2\alpha -24=0

                =\alpha ^{2}-\alpha -12=0

                =\alpha ^{2}-4\alpha +3\alpha -12=0

                =\left ( \alpha -4 \right )\left ( \alpha +3 \right )=0

root=4,-3

sum\: \: of\: \: root=4-3

                              =1
