Which of the following could be the *x*-coordinate of a solution to the system of equations above?

**Note: **

If we had to find the y-coordinate of the system of equations, then we put this value of x in the equation to get the value of y. Here, we got a quadratic equation of x, which did not have any term containing x, so it was easier to solve. If the quadratic equation was of the form , then we would use the quadratic formula to solve the equation.

In 1962, the population of a bird species was 2,000. The population *k *years after 1962 were 48, and *k *satisfies the equation above. Which of the following is the best interpretation of the number 61 in this

context?

**Note:**

This question could also be solved by eliminating the options. Option A is wrong as the population *k* years after 1962 is 48, not 61. Option B is wrong because we find the value of k to be 32. Option C is wrong because the difference between the population in 1962 and the population *k *years after 1962 is given by 2000-48=1952.
