X-2=10
X(SQAURED)+Y(SQAURED)=20
I cant seem to get the formula to work...keeps on coming out uneven!!!
ok. i think you need to provide more info. because i don't see what you want to do here. it seems you want to solve the equations simultaneously, but then the solution for x is given in the first equation which makes the problem trivial. simply substitute x = 12 into the second equation to solve for y. the problem is stupid, unless i am misinterpreting the directions and/or you made a typo
