C-43.

Use your knowledge of graphing short cuts to determine the number of points of intersections of this system. You do not need to solve it.

 $y = (x + 2)^2 − 1$ $y =\frac { 1 } { 2 }x + 2$

Look at the two equations.
Do they look like graphs that you already know?
What information can this give you?

There are two points of intersection. Do you see why?
