Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can put both in the form: \[x^2 + 2x = f(y) \text{ and } g(y) \implies f(y) = g(y) \] Solve this for y (you can cancel a LOT before you start) and put it back in for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so I decided to use the elimination method I put everything with variable on one side and the number on the other side for both equations. Then I multiplied one equation by 1 I was left with 24y^2+112y=72 Then i divided everything by 8 I got 3y^2+14y=9 I moved the 9 over so it becomes neg & the equationis = to zero Now I am stuck on what to do can you help with the next step? Thanks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"I was left with 24y^2+112y=72" You shouldn't have been. You should have (1048)y not (104+8)y. The former cancels much more nicely with the y^2 and constant term.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it should by 96y instead of 112y right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, I have to go, but hopefully you will see the (big) factor that cancels and you can solve it easily got the two y values, then plug back in for x.
