solve following using "elimination method"

3x^2 + 4y = 17
2x^2 + 5y = 12

  • pre calc -

    Multiply the first equation by 2 and the second equation by 3, and subtract one from the other. That will eliminate the x^2 variable.

    6x^2 + 8y = 34
    6x^2 + 15y = 36

    7 y = 2
    y = 2/7

    2x^2 = 12 - 5y = 12 - 10/7
    = 74/7
    x = sqrt(37/7) = 2.299
