## Homework Statement

curve1: x=5t^2-3, y=9t+2

curve2: x=8t^2-12, y=7t+4

find points of collision or intersection, if any

## Homework Equations

see above

## The Attempt at a Solution

I set the x functions or both curves equal to each other and got t=+/- sqrt(3)

I did the same with the y functions and got t=1.

I guess that this shows that there is no collision, but how do I tell if they intersect or not? I graphed this on my calc, and there seems to be an intersection, but how do I solve for it?
