3 - x = x^{2} + 2x - 1

orx^{2} + 3x - 4 = 0

where a = 1, b = 3 and c = -4. Hence, using the quadratic formula for solving this new quadratic equation for the variable x yieldsx_{1} = *-b - √***b**^{2} - 4ac*/**2a*

=*-3 - √***3**^{2} - 4 ∙ 1 ∙ (-4)*/**2 ∙ 1*

=*-3 - 5**/**2*

= -4

and=

= -4

x_{2} = *-b + √***b**^{2} - 4ac*/**2a*

=*-3 + √***3**^{2} - 4 ∙ 1 ∙ (-4)*/**2 ∙ 1*

=*-3 + 5**/**2*

= 1

The corresponding y-values therefore are=

= 1

y_{1} = 3 - x_{1}

= 3 - (-4)

= 7

and = 3 - (-4)

= 7

y_{2} = 3 - x_{2}

= 3 - 1

= 2

In this way, we obtained the two pairs of solutions (-4, 7) and (1, 2) for the given system of equations (as expected). This example corresponds to the cases when the straight line that corresponds to the linear equation graph "pierces" the parabola representing the graph of the quadratic equation, as shown in the figure below. Obviously, this cannot happen always; sometimes the linear graph "touches" the parabola at a single point (it is tangent). This occurs when the discriminant of the new quadratic equation obtained after substituting the linear equation into the quadratic one is zero. Moreover, there are cases when the two graphs do not touch each other at all. This occurs when the discriminant of the abovementioned quadratic equation is negative. Obviously, you don't have to follow such a long procedure as the one described above when solving systems with one linear and one quadratic equation, as our calculator solves the system automatically. You only have to insert the coefficients and constants of the two equations and the result will be displayed automatically. Thus, after making a series of substitutions and transformations in the system derived from the fact that the variable y is expressed in terms of x in the quadratic equation, yields the four formulas below, that give the two possible pairs of solutions (sometimes they show the message "no solution", or the solutions may be equal, depending on the sign of the discriminant). = 3 - 1

x_{1} = *-(a*_{1} + b_{1} b_{2} ) - √**(a**_{1} + b_{1} b_{2} )^{2} - 4a_{2} b_{1} (c_{1} + b_{1} c_{2})*/**2a*_{2} b_{1}

x_{2} = *-(a*_{1} + b_{1} b_{2} ) + √**(a**_{1} + b_{1} b_{2} )^{2} - 4a_{2} b_{1} (c_{1} + b_{1} c_{2})*/**2a*_{2} b_{1}

y_{1} = *a*_{1} ∙ (a_{1} + b_{1} b_{2} ) + a_{1} ∙ √**(a**_{1} + b_{1} b_{2} )^{2} - 4a_{2} b_{1} (c_{1} + b_{1} c_{2} ) */**2a*_{2} b_{1}^{2} - *c*_{1}*/**b*_{1}
