Points of Intersection
Hi
Need help on the following question:
Find the coordinates of the points of intersection of $y=\frac{1}{2}x$ with $x^2-y^2=1$

P.S

You have $y=\frac{1}{2}x$
By substituting this in $x^2-y^2=1$, You will face this eqaution:
$x^2-\frac{1}{4}x^2=1$
Now, Solve the last equation.
