9-159.

Verify that the graphs of the equations *x*^{2} + *y*^{3} = 17 and *x*^{4} − 4*y*^{2} − 8*xy* = 17 intersect at (3, 2). Homework Help ✎

Insert the values of the point into the equations.

3^{2} + 2^{3} = 17

3^{4} − 4(2^{2}) − 8(3)(2) = 17

Simplify.

9 + 8 = 17

81 − 16 − 48 = 17

17 = 17

17 = 17
