A common point on both the equations can be found by equating both the equations.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

how do u equate thm?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

common point: x-2x^2=x^3+2x x^3+2x^2-x=0 x(x^2+2x-1)=0

OpenStudy (a_clan):

x-2x^2 = x^3 + 2x you will get x. put it back in either eqn, you will get y
