1955 AHSME Problems/Problem 49
The graphs of and intersect in:
We can simplify in order to help solve this problem: .
In order to find solutions, we have to have . , but this turns out to be an extraneous solution, as, when put into the two equations, one of them turns out an undefined value. The answer is .
