1. Hello

I'm stuck on this question, see attached. I have tried to do the working out and ended up with one correct answer (1) but there is another solution I missed (0). There must be an issue with my method - can anyone show me the correct way to approach this question and similar questions?

It's question 7e on the second picture

It would help if you posted your method so we can see where you've gone wrong

Oh so y^2 - 6y + 5 = 0 ?

I feel like an idiot now haha, I was going to do that but it didn't seem right
