Solve by using elimination or substitution methods. x^+y^=5 x+y=3Answer by Alan3354(30935)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!What does x^ mean? If it's x^2: ------------- y = 3-x Sub for y in the 1st eqn x^2 + (3-x)^2 = 5 2x^2 - 6x + 9 = 5 x^2 - 3x + 2 = 0 (x-1)*(x-2) = 0 x = 1, y = 2 --> (1,2) x = 2, y = 1 --> (2,1) ------------- Use x^2 for x squared, x^3 for x cubed, etc
