x^2+y^2-4x+2y=20

as

(x-2)^2+(y+1)^2=25=5^2 ...(1)

represents a circle of radius 5 with centre (2,-1).

which intersects with the line

4x+3y=5 ...(2)

So write

y=(5-4x)/3 and substitute in the circle equation (1)

to get (x-2)^2+(((5-4x)/3)+1)^2=5^2

Solve for x in the above quadratic to get:

x=5 or x=-1

Find y accordingly.
