Hi;
I need to move on with simutaneous equations and need practice solving them
for quadratics anyone know where I can get practice questions on the web.

or if someone could give me some examples with answers so I can try to work them out that would be great.

Thanks.

Great just what I needed but I could do with more quadratics in both equations.

Most quadratics will be of the form $\displaystyle \displaystyle y = a_1x^2 + b_1x + c_1$ and $\displaystyle \displaystyle y = a_2x^2 + b_2x + c_2$. Since they are both equal to $\displaystyle \displaystyle y$, they are equal to each other, which means

\displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} a_1x^2 + b_1x + c_1 &= a_2x^2 + b_2x + c_2 \\ (a_1 - a_2)x^2 + (b_1 - b_2)x + c_1 - c_2 &= 0 \end{align*}

another quadratic, which you can solve using the methods you already know :)
