Do you have any thinking on these? Surely you do not want us to give you answers.

1. X^2= 4Y^2 and x=2y+1

Sooo i substitute

(2y+1)^2= 4y^2

Find the square root of both sides

2y+1= 4y

Solve for y

2y+1=4y

1=4y

.25=y

Substitue into X=2y=1

x=2(.25)+1

x=.5+1

x=1.5

But thats not an option.What did i do wrong?
