y = -x + 7

y = 0.5(x - 3)^2

 

Set the y's equal

 

0.5( x - 3)^2 =  - x + 7     to make this easier, multiply through by 2....this gets rid of the "0.5"

 

(x - 3)^2   = -2x + 14          simplify

 

x^2 - 6x + 9 =  -2x + 14      rearrange as

 

x^2 - 4x - 5  =  0   factor

 

(x - 5) ( x + 1) = 0

 

Setting each factor to 0 and solving for x produces

 

x = 5        or     x   =   - 1

 

And using y = - x + 7

 

When x = 5, y = -5 + 7  = 2

When x = -1, y = -(-1 )  + 7   =  8

 

So.....the solutions are   ( 5, 2)     and  ( -1. 8)
