    there is actually very little work to do here it is about \((-2,14)\) for the first one, but that is not an answer choice, the answer choice is somewhat more precise

    you are solving for \(x\) so it is the first coordinate only looks like the first one (one on the left ) is somewhat greater than -2, go with -1.9

    look at the first coordinate of the point of intersection on the right

    the first coordinate of that point is approx 2.6, that is how they got it and no, it is not A
