y^2=36-x^2--(1) Sub (1) into x^2-4y^2=64 x^2-4(36-x^2)=64 x^2-144+4x^2=64 5x^2=64+144 5x^2=208 x=(+/- sqrt 208/5) and then continue to sub in from here to find the number of solution

@erin512 Im so sorry! There is no solution as y^2=36-(+/- sqrt 208/5)^2--> y^2=36-(208/5) hence there will be no solution as the eqn is undefined

no problem! thank you though :) its a multiple choice question and there options are 1,2,3 or 4 solutions, so i'm not sure which it correct :(

@erin512 @amstro Without solving the equations, there is a maximum _possible_ solution of 4, since they are both second degree. The actual solution is zero, still < maximum possible. The question is very vague. I would put parameters a,b,c,d instead of numbers for the purpose of the question, such as x^2-ay^2=64...

@mathmate thank you so much :) so do you think 4 would be the correct answer in this case?
