x^2 + y^2 = 25
3x + y = 15
Find the two points of intersection.

I don't just want the answer, if you could tell me how to find it, it would save my life. The sqaure root is making it really hard for me to understand.

  • calculus -

    from the second,y=15-3x

    then square it...

    225-90x+9x^2 check that, and put it in for y^2 in the first equation, rearrange it in quadratic form, and solve for x using the quadratic formula.
