Post Det. of an n x n matrix, pls help to solve this problem

My task is to prove if it's true that:
a.) det( A^2 + A + I(n) )>=0

b.) det( I(n) + A + B + A^2 +B^2) >= 0

if A and B are n x n matrices and A,B(i,j) takes the values from R (set of real numbers)
and I(n) it's an n x n Identity matrix

* >= means equal or higher

`Hint: $\displaystyle A^2+ A+ I= A^2+ A+ \frac{1}{4}I+ \frac{3}{4}I= (A+ \frac{1}{2}I)^2+ \frac{3}{4}I$

$\displaystyle A^2+ B^2+ A+ B+ I= A^2+ A+ \frac{1}{4}I+ B^2+ B+ \frac{1}{4}I+ \frac{1}{2}I= (A+ \frac{1}{2}I)^2+ (B+ \frac{1}{2}I)^2+ \frac{1}{2}I$
