Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There must be a "trick" I don't see . The roots are too complicated to calculate/simplify manually. For example, delta is \[ \frac{1}{2} \left(139+\sqrt{19317}\right) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(α−γ)(α−δ)(β−γ)(β−δ)=(α^2(γ+δ)α+γδ) \ (β^2(γ+δ)β+γδ)\] put the values of \(γ+δ\) and \(γδ\) then simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\alpha^2+112\alpha+1=0\) \(\beta^2+112\beta+1=0\) \(\alpha\beta=1,\alpha+\beta=112\) \(\gamma^2+139\gamma+1=0\) \(\delta^2+139\delta+1=0\) \(\gamma+\beta=139,\gamma\beta=1\) \((\alpha\gamma)(\alpha\delta)=(\alpha^2(\gamma+\delta)\alpha+\gamma\delta)\) does this lead u to somewhere ?
