In case a graph helps...

g) . The red line is and the blue line is .

The value of y can be calculated just by substituting the value of x or by the graph. - October 13th 2011, 12:57 PMHallsofIvyRe: Simultaneous Equations.
Yet another way to do (g): and :

If x and y are not 0, , [tex]1= x[/itex]. And if x= 1, what is y?

That was "if x and y are not 0". It is easy to check that y is 0 if and only if x is and x= y= 0 satifies both equations.
