    because the two angles reflect eachother

    a linear equation can be expressed in the form:\[y=mx+c\]which you have correctly drawn as a straight line graph

    now think of two linear equations - these would represent, say:\[y=m_1x+c_1\]and:\[y=m_2x+c_2\]

    now, if these two lines intersect, then, at the point of intersection, the y-values of both must be equal - agreed?

    agreed .

    therefore, we can say:\[m_1x+c_1=m_2x+c_2\]at the point of intersection

    which is the same as saying:\[y=y\]

    because y=y thats grate . amazing . tell if we have quadratic equations |dw:1346967366273:dw|

    same applies for quads - except this time you will get two solutions for x instead of one that you got for the linear case

    and each of these, in theory could give you two different y values

    y1=x^2 +mx + c and y2=x^2 +mx + c

    quads are usually written as:\[y=a_1x^2+b_1x+c_1\]and:\[y=a_2x^2+b_2x+c_2\]

    so at the points of intersection we will have:\[a_1x^2+b_1x+c_1=a_2x^2+b_2x+c_2\]

    which leads to a quadratic equation in x - solve to get the two values for x where these curves intersect

    in general, we could have two curves defined by:\[y=f(x)\]and:\[y=g(x)\] |dw:1346967756823:dw|
