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

y1'= −4*y1+y2+y1*y2

y2'= −2*y1−y2+y1*y1

Determine the three critical points of the system and their type of local phase portrait (stable node, unstable, saddle point, spiral, center, no node)

Hence I need to get three critical points (x1,y1), (x2,y2) & (x3,y3) and their local phase portraits. Can somebody help pls?
