Quadratics and simultaneous questions

Work in pairs to find the values of x and y. One works with section A questions the
other with section B.
The answers should be the same. If not check to see who has made a mistake A, B
or me!
If you need it:

a
ac b b
2
4 ! ! !


A Answer B
x + y = 6
x y = -2
(x -2) (x - 4) = 0
2x + y = 1
2x y = -5
2x + y = 1
x - y = 2
x

-4x - 32

3x 2 y= -4
2x + y = 0
2x 2y = 0
x + y = -4
x
