If (x,y) satisfies the simultaneous equations

3xy - 4x^2 - 36y + 48x = 0

x^2 - 2y^2 = 16 
where x and y may be complex numbers, determine all possible values of y^2.

3xy - 4x^2 - 36y + 48x = 0   (1)

x^2 - 2y^2 = 16   (2)

 

Look at the graph here :

Note that, oddly, the first graph is a straight line ......this is known as a "degenerate conic" which never intersects the second function (a hyperbola)....so....no solutions
