# Math Help - Solving systems by graphing

1. ## Solving systems by graphing

xy-8y^2=63
6x+10y=-3

solve the system by finding the intersection points

I graphed the equations on my calculator and got (-11,6) and (11,-7) but I feel like I didn't do it correctly... help?

Do the points satisfy both functions? Substitute them in and find out. If they do, then they are solutions.

You are right. They do not satisfy the following set of equations:

$\begin{cases}xy-8y^2=63 \\ 6x+10y=-3\end{cases}$

Here's the correct graph:

As you can see, there are no real solutions.
