(when I do this I get no consistent solution for x, but I could be doing the
arithmetic wrongly )
Using the graphical method I find an initial estimate for the solution
is x=2.36, y=1.64, and there is probably but one real solution.

is this correct...for some reason it's not getting me a good value for y...

i'm getting tired of this problem...

what is the graphical method ??

Plot a graph of the curve represented by:

$\displaystyle x^2 +y^3 =10$,

and on the same axes plot the graph the curve represented by:

$\displaystyle x^3 -y^4 =-6$.

The points where these curves cross are roots of the system.

You draw the graw and see where it interesects the x-axis.
There is only one such place.
Thus, there is only no real root.

Try the graphs of the original two curves, which do seem to have a root.

Typo, last should be:

$\displaystyle y^9+30y^6-y^4+300y^3+12y^2+964=0$

Substitute,
$\displaystyle (y^4-6)^{2/3}+y^3=10$
Thus,
$\displaystyle (y^4-6)^{2/3}=(10+y^3)$
Typo, last should be:

$\displaystyle (y^4-6)^{2/3}=(10-y^3)$

This canges everything down stream along this line of solution

Expanding this gives:

$\displaystyle y^9 + y^8 - 30 y^6 - 12 y^4 + 300 y^3 - 964=0$

which may be solved numerically to give $\displaystyle y = 1.873782741$

captblack, you're the man you get a +rep.
thanks guys...case closed...untill later
