Solve the system please:

y = x^2 + 5x + 4

y = 8x + 8

Thank you for your time!

y = x^2 + 5x + 4

and

y = 8x + 8

so

x^2 + 5x + 4 = 8x + 8

x^2 - 3x - 4 = 0

(x-4)(x+1) = 0

x = 4 or x = -1

if x = 4 , substitute 4 for x in y = 8x + 8

y = 40

if x = -1 , substitute -1 for x in y = 8x + 8

y = 0

so the solutions to the system are

x=4 and y=40 , x=-1 and y=0
