    I didn't get that at all haha how did you get that? I think the equations were
    Y= 2x^2+16x-9
    Y=5x+3 (or-3?)

    I put 2x^2+16x-9=5x+/-3 and then made them equal to zero and then used the quadratic formula to find x. Then I put x into the equation to find y for each value of x if that helps.

    If you started like that you should get some marks at least and it was quite a tricky question
