Lines and circles having rational operations
I am not sure if this is the right place to ask but I have two problems which I require enlightenment. The questions are,
1) Show that the intersection of two lines can be computed by rational operations.
2) Show that the intersection of a line and a circle can be computed by rational
operations and a square root.
Any help is appreciated.
