The Eigen Vectors of the Matrix  $A=\begin{bmatrix} 3 &4 \\ 4 &-3 \end{bmatrix}$ are $\begin{bmatrix} a\\ 1 \end{bmatrix},\begin{bmatrix} 1\\ b \end{bmatrix}$ the $a+b=?$

Answer is given (a+b)=0 how ?????

For Eigen Values:

Let us suppose eigenvalues are $\lambda_{1},\lambda_{2}$

Sum of all Eigen Values$= $Trace of the matrix=Sum of Leading diagonal element


Product of all diagonal element$=Det(A)=|A|$



Now ,we can make Quadratic Equation if given roots are $\lambda_{1},\lambda_{2}$


put the value from the abpve equation $(1)$ and $(2)$,and we get

Find the eigen values using det(A-$\Lambda$I)=0 it'll be 5,-5

Then solve for value of a and b using (A-$\Lambda$I)x=0 where x are two given eigen vectors, you will get value of a,b as a=2 b=-2

It's very easy maybe you are doing some calculation mistake.
