Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, do it. The isolated 'y' in each is pretty compelling.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would consider isolating y in each equation and then setting them equal to each other (not the y's the equation they are equal to) can you do that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes now we have to solve for x, it is going to turn into a quadratic function: 4x = 6x^2 4 on both sides x = 2x^2 +x on both sides 2x^2 + x = 0 Now order it correctly: x^2 + x + 2 = 0 but x^2 needs to be positive so switch all the signs: x^2  x  2 = 0 Making sense so far? Can you factor this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i factor it and get the x's and then i plug tose into the equation to get the y points of intersection?
