    \[x^2=4y^2\] \[x=2y+1\] Use substitution.

    from the eq. x=2y+1 we get, y=(x-1)/2 now x^2=4y^2 =>x^2=4[(x-1)/2]^2=4[(x-1)^2]/4=(x-1)^2=x^2-2x+1 =>2x-1=0 =>x=1/2

    @abhrag321 Good job going against the Code of Contact of sharing answers and not actually helping them understand the question.

    I have read the Code of Conduct. There is the line, "Don't provide someone with just the answer - explain the process, and help guide them through understanding the problem." So please explain the violation process.
