from first equation y=2-x put this in the second $x^2+2(2-x)^2=11$this is a quadratic for x

Why don't you try to do it first? Do you know how to solve quadratic equations? By the way, we are supposed to guide you to reach the answer yourself, not giving you all the steps and final answer to your question.

Right.. Now consider the equation $$x^2 + 2(2-x)^2 = 11$$ Expand the second term first, what have you got?

I solved it and this what ve got 1.72 or 0.387.to get the above answer you wil have to make x the subject of d formula and subtitute x in equation 2' then expand,u wil get a quadratic equation then solve it to get d final result.
