curve1: x=5t^2-3, y=9t+2
curve2: x=8t^2-12, y=7t+4
find points of collision or intersection, if any
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?
