Hey guys, I have two weird equations that I want to solve for y, but i can't really figure out how to separate the y's from the x's. Here they are: x^2 -xy + y^2 = 7 3x^2 + xy - x - 2y^2 = 2 Thanks

Here they are: x^2 -xy + y^2 = 7 Rearrange: y^2 - xy +(x^2-7) = 0. Threat as a quadratic in y, then the quadratic formula tell us that: y= [x +/- sqrt(x^2-4(x^2-7))]/2 The same method can be used on the other question RonL
Thanks man, i got it
