k i need to solve the following system:
7x  8y = 24
xy^2 = 1
i figured out that x = 1/y^2 and i can reduce it to :
7=24y^2+8y^3
but i don't know how to reduce it anymore after that
I think I would solve it graphically, that is, plot on my graphing calculator the two original equations, and see where they intersect
