well, it is hard for me to graph here so eliminate y by subtracting the second equation from the first x^2 + 5 x -50 = 0 (x-5)(x+10) = 0 so x = 5 or x = -10 if x = 5, then y = -10 if x = -10 then y = 35

if -3m = 0, then the whole thing is 0 so if m = 0, the whole thing is 0 if (2m-5) is 0, the whole thing is 0 so if m = 5/2, the whole thing is 0 so the solutions are m = 0 and m = 5/2
