Solve the nonlinear system.

x^2-2y^2=16

x^2+y^2=25

2. Relevant equations

n/a?

3. The attempt at a solution

ive tried subtracting 1 equation from the other...

(x^2-2y^2+9)=25

-(x^2+y^2)=25

-3y^2+9=25

-3y^2=16

y^2=-16/3

y=root of -16/3...

im not even sure if that part is right, also, i dont know where to go after that.

help?
