and i realise that is of now help...

what you do is you take away one equation from the other so that you get no xs or no ys...and then you solve the xs...
with the solved xs you subsitute the xs with numbers and then solve y....i hope that helps

OK, sorry for the delay forgot all about that.

x^2-4y^2=24

x+2y=6

therefore x=6-2y

subsitute that in for x^2 in first equation.

36 - 12y + 4y^2 -4y^2 = 24

12 = 12y

y=1

Sorry, where does the 36 and the 12y come from?
btw, i have been given the answers and they are
x =5
y = 0.5
