i have y=x^2-x and y=x(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

from this x^2-x=x

therefore: x^2=0, and x then equals zero.

putting this info into y=x, y=0

this gives the points (0,0). however, in the answer book, it shows that the points of intersection are (0,0) and (2,2). how is it possible to do this?!!

appreciate any help or guidance

thanx
