**Reiny**, Thursday, April 26, 2012 at 6:27pm!. from the 2nd : y = 6-x

sub into the 1st:

x^2 + (6-x)^2 = 20

x^2 + 36 - 12x + x^2 - 20 = 0

2x^2 - 12x + 16 = 0

x^2 - 6x + 8 = 0

(x-4)(x-2) = 0

x = 4 or x = 2

2. from the 2nd: y = x+3

sub into the 2nd

proceed as above....

let me know what you got
