    System of Equations with Radicals

    How do I solve this system of equations?

    5sqrrt(x - 2sqrrt(y = 4sqrrt(2

    2sqrrt(x + 3sqrrt(y = 13sqrrt(2

    2sqrrt(x + 3sqrrt(y = 13sqrrt(2
    3(5\sqrt{x} - 2\sqrt{y} = 4\sqrt{2})

    2(2\sqrt{x} + 3\sqrt{y} = 13\sqrt{2})

    ...

    15\sqrt{x} - 6\sqrt{y} = 12\sqrt{2}

    4\sqrt{x} + 6\sqrt{y} = 26\sqrt{2})
    ------------------------------------

    19\sqrt{x} = 38\sqrt{2}

    can you finish from here?
