# Math Help - simultaneous equations

1. ## simultaneous equations

Hi;
I have 4y^2 + 34x +y -52 =0 and 2x + y - 4 =0.

Which I get to 16x^2 -32x + 16 =0

Which factors to (4x - 4)(4x - 4) = 0

Giving a result of (1 , 1).

But the answer is stated as (1 ,2) can't see where I went wrong any ideas?

Thanks.

What you've done is fine! You have found $x=1$ so $y=...$? (Enter x in one of the equations and find y).

Sorry I'm rushing to go to work I forgot to find y.

Thanks again sorry.
