    What methods have you learned for solving a system? Substitution, elimination?

    Elimination I think

    And some substitution but I cant remember how to do that method

    I would probably opt for substitution here, since you have a quadratic (a parabola) and a linear equation (a line). But either would work. If you solve the 2nd equation for y, then you have two equations that both give y as a function of x, right? E.g., you have y={some stuff} and y={some different stuff} so since y= both of those things, you can set them equal to each other.

    When you do that, you'll have a single, quadratic equation to solve.

    What part didn't make sense? Here are your two equations: \[y=x^2+12x+30\]\[8x-y=10\]Can you solve the 2nd one for y?

    Idk how.. I only know how to solve the ones with Y on the other side of the equal sign

    You just need to rearrange 8x-y=10 so that the y is by itself. Try adding y to both sides: 8x-y+y=10+y What do you get when you simplify that? Then subtract 10 from both sides.

    @jessssloukaa the idea is not to do the problem FOR her.
