Solve the system of equations below. Homework Help ✎
x + 3y = 16
x − 2y = 31
The answer for the linear system is (25, −3).
Now rewrite the system and replace
x2 + 3y = 16
x2 − 2y = 31
What effect will this have on the solution to the system? Solve the new system.
Since x2 replaced x and you already know the solution for x, what does x2 equal?
The equations represent parabolas that intersect at two points.
