Here you go for the first one : https://www.desmos.com/calculator/ofobm3u4af

 

For the second

 

You have the correct graphs...the intersection points are  ( -1, -3)  and ( 3,5)

 

Algebraically....set the functions equal

 

x^2 -4  = 2x - 1       rearrange as

 

x^2 - 2x - 3  = 0   factor

 

(x - 3) ( x + 1)  = 0

 

Set each factor and solve for x

 

x -3  = 0          x + 1  = 0

x = 3                  x = -1

 

Put these values into either function for x and you should get the same intersection points as above

 

Hope that helps  !!!
