Ralph wants to find the solution to a system of equations using y = x - 2 and y = x2 + 6x - 38. Joey says that Ralph can solve x2 + 5x - 36 = 0 to find the x-coordinates of the solutions to his system. Explain and demonstrate why Joey is correct.

We have two equations: \[y = x-2\]\[y=x^2+6x-38\] Left side of both equations are identical. What does that imply about the right side of both equations?

Yes! And what do you get if you do that, and then move everything to the same side of the equals sign?
