how do i solve this system of equations
(x+1)^2/25 + (y+2)^2/4 =1
y=(x+1)^2+1
I know that the first one is an ellipse and the second one is a parabola therefore there can be up to 3 intersection points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess you can replace \(y\) in the first equation by \((x+1)^2+1\) but maybe there is an easier way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok how about this :\[y=(x+1)^2+1\] so \[(x+1)^2=y1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0replace \((x+1)^2\) in the ellipse with \(y1\) you will get a quadratic equation in \(y\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{y1}{25}+\frac{(y+2)^2}{4}=1\]lets try that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[4(y1)+25(y+2)^2=100\] thats better

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah they don't intersect what so ever. Well anyways that is fine. the question just says to graph the system of equations and that's exactly what we both did, thanks:) lol sorry for the confusion.
