The graph will help you find the points that solve both equations simultaneously. . We also can set the equations equal to one another to find the simultaneous solutions. . x^2 = x+2 x^2 -x -2 = 0 (x-2)(x+1) = 0 . So the roots (or zeroes) are x=2 and x=-1. . When x=2, y =4: (2,4) when x=-1, y = 1: (-1,1)
