1. y=10-x
y=2xpower2+4
2. (Original post by ariel rai khadka)
y=10-x
y=2xpower2+4
y= 10 - x
y=2x^2 + 4
______________________

10-x=2x^2 +4
-x=2x^2-6
2x^2 + x - 6 = 0
______________________

factorise:

2x(x+2)-3(x+2) = 0
(2x-3)(x+2)=0
x = -2 and 3/2
______________________
substitute in the value of x
y = 12
y= 8.5
______________________
x= -2, y =12
x= 3/2, y = 8.5
