Question

Use the equations represented in the graph below to find the point of intersection

Hint:

Equate and find the point.

The correct answer is: (x, y) = (17,7)


    Complete step by step solution:
    Here the given equations are

    y = 7…(i)
    y equals 10 minus square root of x minus 8 end root …(ii)
    On equating (i) and (ii),we get
    10 minus square root of x minus 8 end root equals 7
    On rearranging, we get 10 minus 7 equals square root of x minus 8 end root
    On squaring both the sides, we get 3 squared equals x minus 8
