(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find all solutions for the following system:

X^2-xy+2y^2=8

X^3-xy^2=0

2. Questions

What steps could I take to solve this? I've tried just about everything I can think of. I don't

know if I should solve the cubic equation for a variable and plug it in or what. I am petty stumped here guys.

3. The attempt at a solution

I took an x out of the x^3-xy^2 making it x(x^2-y^2)=0 and that is basically the only logical thing I have thought of. Thanks for any of your help!
